You're right. I guess it all depends on the area/neighborhood. I have seen ads for NEW good size homes in Omaha going for $130K and up. I'll take those prices over the prices for average size homes here in Southern California.

It all depends. We sold our house in San Antonio for $81.98/sq ft. Here in Omaha our house didn't show the finished basement on the Douglas County Assessors website so it appears that we paid $105.80/sq ft (previous owners did not pull permits with city when they finished it, which they were up front about). But if you do the math with the square footage of the basement added in, we paid $70.93/sq ft.

When we were looking for houses, we didn't have much opinion either way about the basement being finished. Now, by watching the home sales around us, I know that we got a really good deal and wouldn't want to buy a house with an unfinished basement unless the house was such a killer price that I could justify spending the thousands of dollars to finish it.

Question for the native Omahaoans: What is the obsession with Oak trim and floors all about? It seems like every home listing I look at, especially newer homes, are lined from floor to ceiling in Oak trim and in many cases Oak
floors, too. Is this just a regional obsession or what? (Hint: oak is not in style in my area)
