What You Get for the Money

There's this new show on HGTV that I watched the other day called "What You Get for the Money." They compare homes all across the America, but for the same price.

The show I saw was for homes that cost $900,000.00. The showed homes in Florida, Texas and California. As you have already guessed, the smallest house for the $900,000.00 price was from California (Glendale). It was a 2500 sq. ft., a nice neighborhood with a pool. The house wasn't like a "WOW" house, but it was nice. However, the house from Texas... woo hoo! For 5000 sq. ft., it was castle-like, on a nice sized lot, it was a very good buy! The house in Florida was nice too, but it was only about 3000 sq. ft. This house had a lot of its original features, like crown moldings and hardwood floors. It was very nice too, but I wouldn't pay $900,000.00 for it.

It makes me kinda sick thinking about the ultra high prices of homes here in California. How can a single family afford a home now here in California? ICK!

The show is on again tonight. I guess it is now being shown on Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. Eastern/Pacific. Tonight, from what I remember, the price range is $200,000.00. They'll probably show huge houses in Idaho's rural areas, or a 1 bedroom, 1 bath loft condo in North Hollywood, California.

sounds interesting! Prices for homes &/or properties are going sky high crazy here in Florida, or atleast they have started to. I wouldn't call real estate here California high yet, but I believe it will be soon.

LOL! I watched the show (price range in the $200,000's), and there were some nice homes in Kansas City, Raleigh (NC), Minneapolis, Seattle, Denver, Lee's Summit (MO), and Atlanta. They weren't huge, of course, but they were nice. It still boggles me that there are homes that still cost $200,000.00.

The next show on 6/22/05, the price is from the $700,000's. That would be fun to watch.

$700k would get you...a slighter larger trailer!

Speaking of trailers, on our cable system they have this "On-Demand" thingy where you can get movies on demand but also some TV on demand like Food Network and HGTV. So yesterday, I was watchkng this show on "Mobile Mansions"..these are high-end RV's that START at $750k. Some amazing things going down the road. Some looked silly with all the lights and vegas looking stuff on the inside, but still, they were VERY nice. This one guy had FOUR pop-outs...2 for the living room and 2 for the master bedroom! Talk about space!
