Not really. Prices have gone up, but it's still a bargain. I just wouldn't choose to live there again because it's very bland and the climate sucks.

Average is still reasonable but desirable inner city neighborhoods or suburbs are very expensive.

A decent single family home in Northern suburb is at least 350k. New home is 500k. Certainly more expensive than the Midwest and South/Southeast.

Certainly there are cheaper place in the metro such as the hell holes Arlington or South Dallas. You wouldn't want to move across the country to live there.

I wonder if there are areas of Columbus OH that would work, given the presence of a fashion industry in the area and of the largest university in the country? Perhaps Westerville, Worthington, Gahanna....?

Yeah I guess. 350 gets you nothing in the DC area. Nothing that you would want your family to live in.

I'd have to disagree with that somewhat; now it might be hard finding something around 350K in a nice neighborhood within the Beltway, but if you go out just a little, there are options. Bowie would be a really good example.
