what is the starting price for houses in that neck of the woods.  US$400/450,000 is the starting price for houses around here roughly (about £250,000- sometimes a little less).  You were joking weren't you?  Houses aren't THAT cheap even in the US.

 

Why yes, they are! We have 5 nice houses to choose from in the 100-125 range this weekend. I have already seen 2 of them and one of them I am going to get if none of the others match our needs. It is a wonderful little brick 3 bed 2 bath number with 1.5 acres of fenced, wooded beautiful lot! I cannot even see my neighbors on either side because of space and woods; brand new wood deck, brand new heatingac; recent house inspection, warranty, they are paying all closing cost and throwing in a lowes $500 gift certificates for any home improvements! Yes, this is indeed a buyers market!{#Dancingbanana_2}

Addendum: the area just got ranked as #8 on Newsweeks or somebodys poll of best cities to live in the US. Taking into consideration; income, job availability, school district quality, crime rates and so forth. Besides, my job is why I am moving in the first place!{#Yes}

Good for you!  There is a massive premium on land here due to difficulty in getting planning permission, high population density and supply not keeping up with demand.  We do live in a prcey town though and you can get small apartments for quite a lot less but still way more than $100k.  Prices here have really got out of hand over the last few years and the recent drop back isn't THAT much compared to where prices were 10 years ago when we bought.  Local estate agent.
 
Not to say there aren't areas like you describe over here (San Francisco, only one example).  But if you're willing to travel far, you can find a house.  Will it be somewhere you want to live or where there are jobs?  Most likely not

As far as wanting to leave the state. Yes I do. I want to go back home, to Memphis, where I have many more friends than NC, and family and the sellers aren't nearly as proud of their real estate.

 
I didn't even look at the date of the posting...sorry!{#Redface}  color  me embarrassed....  glad to hear you sold it though HF, especially before the crash.....and I understand about "returning home"...that's why I'm sweltering in FLA at the moment..

I just miss Asheville something terrible..... good luck with your move!
