What $300K Buys You Now


The national median sales price for existing single-family homes was $191,600 in 2014's first quarter, according to the National Association of Realtors. But in many big cities -- from Boston ($363,200) and Washington, D.C. ($358,900) on the East Coast to Seattle ($339,900) and San Diego ($483,000) on the West Coast -- most home buyers will pay $300,000 or more.

We’ve rounded up 12 properties for sale across the country for about $300,000 to show how far your home-buying dollar can stretch, depending on where you live. Check out the studio apartment in New York City, the six-bedroom suburban home with a large backyard pool in Harlingen, Tex., and everything in between. Where would you rather live for the money? Take a look.
