The national median sales price for existing single-family homes hit $269,000 in the second quarter of this year, according to the National Association of Realtors. However, depending on where you choose to live, that much money may get you a large, single-family home with plenty of amenities -- or a studio apartment.

In cities such as New York City and San Diego, you’ll find only small studio and one-bedroom condos or even mobile manufactured homes at that price point. Meanwhile, in Jacksonville, Fla., or Houston, for instance, you can snag a single-family home with some acreage and a pool in the backyard.

We rounded up to $300,000 and looked for homes for sale in 21 of the largest U.S. cities from coast to coast to see just how much homebuyers can get for their money. Here’s what we found.
