What $300,000 + Buys You in…

This will be kind of fun. I and hopefully my other blogger friends will take you on a tour to show you what $300,000 will buy you in various parts of the country. When I say “$300,000 +” that means that the purchase price is around $300,000. The cities will be arranged in alphabetical order. I submitted Houston.

UPDATE: So far, I think the winner is the house in Indianapolis followed by Houston.

  1. $314K will buy you this wonderful 1/1, 35 year old condo in my zipcode…

    Thankfully, I bought my townhouse here ($650K in current market, 2/2, 1300 square feet) in the late 1990s for about $300K. About the only good thing is “Prop 13”, which fixes your property tax assessments at the price you paid + 1%/year, so if you don’t move, property taxes stay about the same and drift lower as a percentage of the market price…

  2. “JLP at AllThings Finanical wanted financial blogs in other areas of the country to show you what $300,000 buys you in other areas of the world . I think it is pretty interesting to see the disparity of what 300K will buy you. I live around Boston and in Boston $300,000 will get you a nice 450 square foot studio condo in the heart of the city.”
