That amount will get a decent home in Vistancia in Peoria, AZ right now if it is a bank owned home. Trend has several new build townhomes here starting at that price, but the development has not started to show signs of life after coming to a stop.

You could have bought my house. 4 bedroom, two bath home in downtown Orlando. Little shops, a couple of pubs, and restaurants in walking distance. A concert courtyard being built down the street, and museums/science center also in bike distance. $147500.

I live in the suburbs of Orlando. You can get a vey nice condo in that price range. Maybe a 1200 sq ft home that is a foreclosure.

I had no idea you could buy a home in CA for that price. I thought it was much more expensive.

A nice old victorian that's been updated in a village.

A smaller but nice quality newer home with a couple acres in the country.

Our average sale price is around $125K, but that can be skewed by waterfront properties, so you'd have something better than average.

Upstate, NY

In my city.. $150K will get you into a cramped 1-2 bedroom townhouse or condo in a neighborhood that has a shooting at least once a week. ((Not all end in murder, though!))

Or a timeshare.
