February 07, 2020

You’ve probably heard that homes in New York City and California are wildly expensive — homes cost an average of $820,000 within the San Francisco city limits. But it isn’t just the prices that are out of line with what you might find in the Houston area — it’s the type and size of homes, as well.

So just for fun, let’s take a look at what $250,000 will buy you both in the U.S. and around the world (note prices are within city limits):
