Was just browsing the weather channel, and found this little article showing pictures of houses running about $200k (+/- $15k-ish). (Not that any of us can afford such a price, but supposing you had someone hand you a quarter of a million dollars to choose a home and move there...)

I thought it might be fun to poll members as to which house of those on offer (all are pictured) each of us would prefer, and why. Link to slide show

This one is my first choice (click to enlarge):


I think a person's choice of home says a lot about their character and personality. If anyone is interested, we could also do 2nd choice, 3rd choice, and LAST RESORT.

My selection is based on the natural wood, classic styling, and 22 acres of serenity. Montana. I'll take it.

PS: To make it less stressful to play, I'll upload the pic of your choice for you if you don't want to.

Great choice, I like that one too.

I thought it was too funny I picked this house and then saw it's in Washington, where I live anyway!

I liked it because it looked like it was in the woods and it's small. I'm into small houses,

So far ... Alaska, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin all caught my eye for various reasons.

Of course, final decisions would be practical. Are they close to where we work? Are they close to good schools? Do they have a good kitchen space?

Let's pretend it doesn't matter about where you work or already live. Just choose the one that's your style. Assume you'd have a job there, okay? The kitchen is great, the schools can't be beat. The climate and general location can be considered also, of course.

Just going by the facade and lot - pick one. You know - curb appeal. Which one expresses your personality the best?

Here's your picture:


Aside from the shocking price, what do you like about it?

This one in Louisville, Kentucky is going for the equivalent of £103k ($162k)!!



What would that get us in the UK? It'd be £250-300k over here and worse in the SE.

Probably half the town and enough guns to defend it probably

200k around here would be a decent 4-5 bed with a bit of room so long as you didn't head into certain areas where prices go a little loco

I didn't see one that said, "Oooo, PICK ME!"

The ones I listed were all agreeable. I think the main factors were they looked somewhat lived in with nice big trees or other greenery around.

We had a vacation in Connecticut last month around Hartford and I was flipping through a real estate guide.
Yeah I know, boring,,, but the ladies where shopping the local stores..
Anyhow, a house the size of my tool shed was $200k there.

Hhhm bit iffy with wood housing.
I like stone or brick and every house I have lived in is at least 100 years old.
Built to last.
I do like the style though kinda amitiville horror lol.

It goes by state, not city. We can do Michigan, though....

I would also choose the Montana house. None of the others even compare, imo. The acreage seals the deal.
