In my area they have brandnew brick homes: 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3,000 sq. ft. for $225,000. But I think that's a little pricy!! IMHO!

momof2dfw, you must be insane. Are you just trying to detour people from moving to Texas? There are tons of houses for very reasonable prices in Texas. Even in places like the Woodlands, Pearland,Sugarland, Katy, and Conroe there are 2500+ sqft for average of $70 per sqft. You are smoking crack up in dallas I guess. This site is to help people not give crazy info that is far from true.

My home is custom Tudor, 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, hardwood floors, granite kitchen, dual convection ovens, office/library, formel dining room, porte-corcher, raised block panneling, 2 fireplaces, 24 by 17 family room, and 22 by 17 game room, at the end of a rather long culdesak. Price in 2005-$180,000. Its been increasing in value about 7% per year.

Thats sounds to good to be true. My house is about 1300 square on a corner lot and market value is about 125k. This is a 25 year old home built by respectable builder. Im near Sea World San Antonio, a microsoft plant and a community college. I paid 101 K in 2005, it needed a makeover. It has a really cool floorplan, 17 foot celings in the living dining area.

We bought our 3500 sq ft, 5 bedroom/3 bathroom house (which is on about an acre of land) for about 350k in 2004 (it was built in 1999). There's plenty of mature trees in the yard, the basement was completely finished with a pool table and it is in a great neighborhood. This is just outside of Green Bay, WI (takes us about 10 minutes to get anywhere within the GB city limits). The downside is a) the notoriously cold Wisconsin winters and b) there's not a whole lot going on here, other than the Packers.
