How much do houses cost in the US these days?
« on: September 25, 2007, 08:53:43 AM »
The dollar is trading low and house prices are coming down - I may be interested in an investmest I could put up $100,000 without having to borrow a penny what could I get for that and what could I get If I had $300,000 to spend? Your thoughts please

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

If you were really up to invest $100,000 or more, you'd probably make the effort to get this information from a source that is more suitable than WCC. I bet you just want to show off.
Cause I don't care where I belong no more
What we share or not I will ignore
And I won't waste my time fitting in
Cause I don't think contrast is a sin
No, it's not a sin

i'm not seriously interested right now, on that you are right, but i was just looking for some general info and it could be something to look into in the next year or so, my currently plans are to buy a house when i go back to the UK, but i'm looking at minimum of $400,000 for anything there and the chances are i'm only gonna live there for 2 or 3 years and then return to Korea and keep the house as an investment/pension

Uh, are you aware of how big and diverse the US is? Housing costs very widely from state to state. To buy a house in Califonia you will need at the very least $400,000. If you go to Mississppi you can get a nice house for $100,000.

No way in hell I'd buy a house as an investment in the states right now.  We're coming down from the greatest real estate boom in history and it's coming down extremely hard.  I don't think it's gonna even come close to bottoming out until 2009 at the EARLIEST.  Foreclosure trends are increasing, new home construction is slowing, existing home sales are slowing.  We're in for a MAJOR correction in the market to offset all of the insanity of the past several years.
