What Does a $350,000 Home Look Like?

When looking for a place to build your new home, it’s important to consider the relative value of the dollar. Where you choose to live will certainly affect your options.

For those who haven’t strayed very far in their choices of residency, it’s pretty easy to forget this little fact about money: It’s all relative!

Clearly, a home with ocean views in Honolulu, Hawaii, is going to cost quite a bit more than a simple family home in the suburbs of Houston, Texas. A budget of $350,000 might not get you very far down in paradise, but the same price tag could bring an overwhelming amount of options your way back in the Lone Star State.

If you’re looking for a fresh start in a new city and home size is a major deciding factor, you might want to consider the relative value of your dollar. To help you visualize this, we chose five thriving real estate markets across the nation and pored through new home listings here on NewHomeSource.com, the new home authority, with more new homes and new home communities for sale and more helpful articles for new homebuyers than any other website, to find what kind of home you can get with $350,000.
