    Well - and remember that we do pay more in property taxes here on average...

    It also depends on your tax bracket. As a single head of household - the house I owned save me HUGE amounts of money on my taxes - about 7k per year in taxes I didnt have to pay! But now as a married couple in a higher bracket, we don't benefit nearly as much.

    Man , yall are choking me with some of these house prices..JJJJJJEEEZZZZZ... I paid 55K for my 4 bedroom in SW Ft Worth about 10 years ago (since then have moved).. but I threw up for a week after signing the papers... I guess Im 2 cheap...
    You ain't seen nothing! LOL You ought to get a load of NY prices! Whew! The average house in my next of the woods is about $250,000 (a ranch or split or older home). I am looking for a house somewhat cheaper than that....and they are mostly fixer uppers or in more rural areas.

    Oh no.. this country girl has no place in the big city..My current house cost me $6 K and it is paid for. I just dont know how people pay for these expensive homes and still have money to eat and function in life. I realize that the cost of living varies according to where you live.

    Thanks for this information. And from what I hear, they usually pay less than other places.

    It cost you how much???? Is that $6,000??? Must be a typo! You cannot get a rental for much less than $1000 a month here! LOL. When I say "rural areas", I mean not in NYC or our bigger citites....more country for NY. NYC prices are unbelievable. A rent in NYC averages over $3000 a month (for say a 2 bedroom)!

    (Excuse the typo in my last message. I meant, "....in my neck of the woods." <blush>)

    It was not a typo.

    I thought the OP meant $60K. New pop-up campers cost $5-7K for a fancy one. Have a hard time believing someone could buy a house for $6K (unless maybe a friend was getting a divorce and wanted to sell it cheap!)

    lol well I dont live in a pop up trailer although I have thought about it. This deal was something I fell into , someone needed to sell it and I needed a somewhere to live so I paid 250/month until it was paid for. But I have ran across these deals several times in this area. We had to put new floors in and we did some renovation on the bath and kitchen areas. There are draw backs to this type of deal. Im looking at my kitchen right now and my cabinet door fell off my bottom cabinets but you know that goes with buying old stuff and fixing it up. We bought this house because we wanted to complete our masters degrees and not worry about someone taking away our house if we got behind on the payments.

    Sheesh. That's crazy, and not exactly typical But, you do live out in the boonies *teasing*

    But, compared to most places in the US, houses in Texas are CHEAP.

    For me it is perfectly normal...yeah and I dont live far enough in the boonies ...more cars pass the house than tractors...thats when I know I need to move further south....lol
