Here's What Kind of House $300,000 Will Buy You (PHOTOS)

mesa arizona houseDo you ever wonder how much more -- or less space you could buy if you moved to another city? As a New Yorker, that game is almost painful. Oh, the palace I could buy in Utah if I sold my teeny little apartment in Brooklyn! We thought it would be fun to compare how much house the same amount of money will buy you around the country. The median house price in the U.S. is around $188,900. Let's up that just a tad -- here's what $300,000 (more or less) will get you.

Eh...we live in one of the highest income per-household counties in the entire country (TONS of government contractors, suburb of DC, land of the McMansions)...$300k won't get you much, but I love it here...people with water-slides and Grecian columns still piss me off though...

Really, nothing for Chicago? We always are left out and underappreciated. Chicago has some of the best museums and historic places in the USA.

Wow this is insane! We have a 2000 sq ft, 3 bedroom 2 bath home and we only paid 137,000. It's in a really nice neighborhood and was only 5 yrs old when we bought it (2 yrs ago). I'll admit that we got an awesome deal on it but 300k would buy one hell of a house down here on the MS gulf coast.
