I'm pretty sure (like 100%) that the concept of "location, location, location" is in no way unique to the US.

The difference here is that we haven't had a housing market collapse so that our prices are absurdly high compared to yours at the moment.

No, we Americans invented e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

Seriuosly regardless of the market a 2000 ft home could sell for 100,000 more than a duplicate house and be within 7 miles of eachother.

Location is everything in Real Estate, even if you have a crappily built home.

Think 90120 vs 90280.

eek.

I'm not sure why you think you have to explain that to anyone.

I wish I could get a big house like that for that price here.

Even with the talk of the 'credit crunch' here, house prices are still stupid high. I live in an old mining town where all the mines closed and we were left with a massive unemployment problem. However, an ex-local authority, semi-detached house with tiny garden on the edge of a council estate would sell for around £120,000 nowadays. Which is, what, around $240,000. Even the tiny 2 bed terraced houses with around a 6 foot yard in an area rife with drugs and antisocial behaviour sell for around £80,000. It's horrific. And round here the prices are considered dirt-cheap by UK standards.

I own a house, so theoretically I don't want the prices to drop, but I have so many friends who can't afford to move out of their parents' house at age 30. It sucks.

anyway, this isn't FYM, so I'll shut up now

ppl aren't as smart as you.

your post made it seem like the housing collapse ran congruent with the location issue.

i seek clarity to potential misunderstanding or misinterpretation.

That's cheap. A house like that around here would be at least a mil.

You might have a new neighbour in the next ten years, db.

This is what I lived in before I moved to Canada:



"OH MY GOD! You're from South Africa? Like, did you live in a mud hut?!"
"Of course. There were lions in my back garden and everything"
"OH MY GOD! That's so cool!"

The point was that house prices in the US are half or less than that of the rest of the world, it seems. I don't know what constitutes expensive about the link to that house you posted. It'd be repossession price here, if even that, and they're as rare as hens teeth. I may not have been clear enough. But with the few varied examples I've seen, it's really got nothing to do with location; it might be in the centre of NYC, or in the sticks of Az. Houses over there are incredibly cheap. It makes me wonder what your incomes comparatively like.


Anyhow, let's not FYM up the place

I would actually absolutely love to live in Tempe. Was looking at a music production school there for a long time (Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences on W Broadway), but if I get a student visa to the US, I can't get a job, and I'd need a job to be able to pay for a place to live.

What do you think of the Phoenix area, db?

nice crib diamond

i live in a nice established area, but about 3 miles from me where the "old money" in OKC is, my house would go for 3 times as much. I know because a friend of mine just paid triple what i paid for mine for a similiar house in this area. Lo Lo Location right? One day im gonna get a mansion, but for now mine will do nicely.
