I live in California. If that place is ocean front like it looks in the pic, then there is no way it would go for less than a million.
@sullywow, I lived in Los Angeles and cant belive rent was $1800-2000 for a two bedroom apartment. Freaking nuts.
@Velocitaptor, SF is higher than that I've heard. In Fresno I used to have a 2 bed 1 bath apartment for around $900 a month.
@Kaji, santa cruz is about the same as sf. Rooms can go for $1k not an apartment just a room.
@sullywow, and it has windows, to expensive for me
@Kaji, I checked it once. For the rent on a tiny studio, you could have been making payments on the 6 bed/7 bath house a few blocks from me with no money down. Oh, and in addition to the house, you also got a detached garage that had a guest house upstairs. The guy who used to own it lived in the garage and rented the house to college students.
@Velocitaptor, $1800 for a TWO bedroom? That's a fockin steal where I am.
@Kaji, was it in the ghetto? Cause when I lived in Fresno I couldn't find anything in a decent area under 1500 for a one bedroom
@Velocitaptor, where'd you find a place that cheap!?
Ghetto, got it
@Velocitaptor, in Louisiana around the gulf, you're lucky to find a 2bdrm, 1 bath apartment for less they $1200
@LilPuppyOfDOOM , ghetto adjacent. A ross the street from kastner
@Kaji, oof...I maybe spent a week at the apartments on Lane ave near the IRS building. Dont think there was a single day there wasnt gunshots and someone methed up
@LilPuppyOfDOOM , sounds like when I lived off McKinley and millbrook by floradora.
@LilPuppyOfDOOM , but when me and the wife bought our house, we actually had a 2 bed 1 bath apartment in clovis, behind the foodmaxx off shaw and sunnyside. And one of the big motivators to just buy a house was the rent was going up again to 1 grand a month. For an extra 400 a month we got a 3 bed 2 bath house in tarpey.
Listen, I’m from Kansas City! I had a full on mansion, 4 bedroom, 3 bath, full basement, fenced backyard with koi pond and was paying $900 a month! Fu*k I miss Kansas!!
@celtics313131, Kansas City sounds a hell of a lot cheaper than St. Louis. That's less than my mortgage and my house needs a lot of updating, literally same number of beds and baths
@celtics313131, what kinda job did u have and what did u make working there cause that sounds so fûcking dope
@celtics313131, wichita here. 4 bed 3 bath 2000 sq ft fenced backyard with fire pit and brick patio off the deck and a theater room in the basement. 950/month
@celtics313131, smallest mansion I’ve ever heard of.
@celtics313131, wow, I can’t believe some one is publicly hyping Kansas. But yes, I agree it is quite nice.
@celtics313131, are there any jobs there?
@celtics313131, My first apartment was an 800 sq ft 1-bedroom in a ghetto part of SoCal. $900 a month.
@celtics313131, where’s the catch 🤔
@Not him again, I’m sorry
@bobbylupo, I owned my own window washing company
@Albadactyl King, ouch
@whatthefrank, none! KC is so underrated! So much to do, the best food of anywhere Ive been, amazing schools
@celtics313131, sounds like something a real estate agent would say. I’ll take it!
@Kyler15, shoot with that, hell I'll be your neighbor soon.
@Albadactyl King, 800 sq ft!? 5 years ago my wife and I were renting a 400 sq ft (to the exterior walls. It was literally 19'2" square inside) and that was $1150/mo + utilities. Not even in LA.
@mas2de, Damn, that's even worse, haha. I was in Orange County, rather than LA, but that was still by far the biggest i could find for that price.
That NC one looks more like 220 grand. Depends on some factors I guess. But I’ve seen several similar houses go for between 200 and 225. Maybe more now because of inflation, or less because of coronavirus. Markets weird
@FPVeteranWolf, depending on where it could even be about 300-330.
@MeddlingKid, that’s true. I didn’t even think about location. You put that house near Raleigh or Charlotte, or on a large plot in a nice area, or both, and the price skyrockets
As someone who lives in Georgia, I want to know where you can find a house like that for so little money.
@kittenmaster12, agreed. Unless its in the absolute middle of nowhere, that house is going to be no less than $600k
The only reason it is cheaper is because you dont have sh** over there!
Real estate is all about timing though. I bought my house in the Bay Area in 2010 for $360,000. It had just sold in 2006 for $660,000 and now it’s valued close to $700,000 again.
The weird thing is that most of California wasn’t like this until pretty recently. In 1975, my folks bought a 3B2B house on a half acre just south of Sacramento for $35k. Today it’s valued around $650k. Other than upkeep, nothing has really been added to the house. It’s crazy!
@CaliforniaDuck, my parents' house was under 400k in 2000. 2000 sq ft, front and back yard, full 2 car garage, driveway and street parking. Most other places were about 500k then. Now it sold a couple years ago for almost 700k. Yards were not great but the interior was much nicer than when they bought it.
I live in Yorba Linda, in Orange County, California. My home is 1800 sq feet, with no yard, no driveway, and about 400 sq feet of patio.
In 2006, I paid $650,000 for my house. 🤷🏼♂️
I live in Fresno county, one of the cheaper areas of California. This is accurate AF.
I own a 1300 sqft. 3B2B house, paid 200k. Where I want to move in Wyoming I have found a 3000 sqft 2 story, 5B3B, with a 1000 sqft finished basement with a detached shop/garage on an acre of land for anywhere from 130k to 170k.
@Kaji, yeah but it's Wyoming. ... Although, it's also Fresno. At least you'll have rain and fields and not just dust, garbage and gangs. Here in CA you're no more than about 2 hours from all you could possibly need. Out there it can be a 3 hr rough drive to the store which is a shack on the side of the road.
@mas2de, that's true. Pretty much all Wyoming gets is high winds, rain, and snow. And it can be a drive to some of the cooler parts of Wyoming. Will definitely miss the only good feature of Fresno when I leave, of being a maximum of 8 hours from any other part of CA.
Utah is getting up there too smh. My parents house 20 years ago cost 150k and now its 300k. I blame Silicon Slopes from companies moving from The Bay here but at the same I dont because I work for a fin-tec company but still, housing shouldnt be this expensive.
But is it worth living in Georgia? Diet Florida?
Texas used to be like that, until all the Californians started moving here :/
Me and my husband are buying our first house in Oklahoma and property is super cheap here. Our mortgage payment is going to be almost half of what our rent is.
2004 be like
