I live in a new construction home (2007) and its a crawl space (actually called a "tall crawl") ... so don't let a real estate agent tell you that all new construction are built on slabs now. My house may be a little more expensive than average, but at around $500k its not exactly elite.

Most of the high points have been highlighted already, but just for one more vote for a crawl - personally, I wouldn't buy a slab for my permanent residence. I would have strongly preferred an actual basement, but that wasn't an option that was easily available around the areas I was looking.
