It wont be 3000 sq ft, new construction mcmansion right by the beach, with granite counter tops (unless it has been recently renovated). But a 1800sq ft 3br 2ba ranch with a decent yard is easily found in that range.
It sure is and UHgrad....you're a great help!

I don't think $300K would get much of anything decent in Great Bridge. I would count on $350K to $500K for a decent family home. To me it is not worth those prices, but coming from LA the OP would probably consider that cheap.

I will just post the links of houses in the area that are in the man's budget... I will leave it up to the poster to make the judgement calls on what is a decent home.

Single family homes in great bridge with at least 2br and 3ba on a minimum 8000sqft lot.
