    How much do houses cost on average where you live?

    In the county of Surrey in England, where I live the average house costs 312,670 (approx $600,000 or 442,000). That is about 23 times my salary BEFORE taxes and national insurance.

      Yes, but Surrey is very expensive, almost the same as London which is the most expensive place to live.

      In my borough (Reigate & Banstead) the average flat is around 166,000 but a former council flat can cost from about 100,000 ($190,000 or 140,000) but that is not going to be very nice at all.

        Its a bit cheaper up north! Where I'm from, Blackburn, Lancashire (England), the average is around the 100,000 mark ($185,000 or 145,000). For that, you can expect a 3 bedroomed semi. Its more expensive out of town though, still nowhere near the expense of Surrey for the equivelent property.

            Ah but you're living in Creepy Crawley, the nastiest town in the whole of West Sussex! I am currently writing this at work in Crawley though... Still Crawley is still expensive to buy a house, although the cheapest place round Gatwick.

              Here in the Atlanta area, the typical new home is between $150,000-$175,000. Some older homes intown run that much and we're talking about little tiny 2 bedroom 1 bathroom bungalows built in the 1920s and 1930s. There are some older neighborhoods intown where some of the home values have tripled in value over the last 5-7 years. Since the late 1970s, people have been buying up old homes in what were then less-than-desirable neighborhoods for $25,000-$50,000 or so, and after renovations, these homes are worth upwards of $75,000 or more (and those values keep on growing). Back during the 1970s, the Inman Park area had a number of homes bought by the state for a highway project that was later toned down to short parkway. Those homes were torn down, and over the last five years, the state started selling many of the smaller pockets of parcels they bought (The main piece of land they owned they transferred to the City of Atlanta, who turned it into a park. The price of the land alone is well over $100,000 an acre in this area. Some homes have been built that fit in with the neighborhood, and the larger tracts were picked up by developers and San Francisco and New York style townhomes have been build on those sites (Many of these run $200,000+). A lot of older industrial and office buildings have been turned into lofts, many of which start at around $125,000 for a 500 square foot studio loft, and there are even lofts going for upwards of $750,000. There are a number of new build lofts as well, and the prices are in line with the conversions.

                Not much, our house in Taupo has probably tripled in value since we moved out 11 years ago.

                              At least 2800 square feet. Pretty big and located in a nice neighborhood. I guess cheap housing prices are what you get for living in the middle of nowhere...
