What $300,000 Can Buy You Across the U.S. (Slideshow)

  • 3 of 11

2. San Francisco, Ca.

Stats: 264 Sqft studio apartment.

Let’s all take a minute to absorb how tiny this studio apartment is. Okay, ready? What’s even more interesting is that this is, in fact, one of the only livable properties for sale in the city by the bay for under $300,000! From the looks of it, you’ll need a fold out couch to make this work, and the windows look out on either the hallway or the building next door.

So very true, Kamia T.

Interesting article. I don't live in the States, but most western countries have some of the same issues when it comes to homes.

Across the bay from San Francisco you might get a walk in closet for that price. :(

So, property prices vary according to what people are prepared to pay? And what they're prepared to pay depends mostly on how much they're likely to earn if they live there. That's hardly earth-shattering news.

Sorry guys, but if you just REALLY want to be paying for a million years on your house and/or never own it yourself, have fun. Here in the fly-over, forgotten rural lands of the Midwest, $300,000 would buy you 40 acres, a barn, a home, a pond, and a WHOLE lot of change! Not to mention gorgeous wildlife, clean air and affordable mortgage, tax and insurance payments LOL

for national policies, such cost of living differences are important to remember for any dollar-based formulas

here in NC cost of living is fine, our 5 bedroom 3 bath house was affordable and in the center of 100 acres. Love it :)

Very good article. I've tried juicing for a day or two (don't remember), and it felt ok. But longer …

Difficult to follow for some people

Is there any proof? If so where do I find it?

Holy cow! How do they do that! Amazing!
