What Can You Get for 500K Two Years Later

It’s been almost two years since I posted examples of houses for 550-550K in various cities in 2006 throughout the country. I think it’s time to revisit this for a few cities.

Culver City California

Not a huge step up but definitely a better location and a little less Appalachian feel to it.


San Franciso, CA

Definitely a big step up from 2006. You can now get significantly more than a small shack for this price.


San Diego, CA

You saved yourself a good 200K and got a nicer place if you waited 2 years for the bubble to deflate from 2006.


Clearwater Florida


In 2006 you could get a really nice house at this price. Now you can get a McMansion that requires lots of extra dusting.

Boca Raton, Florida


Pay less to get a lot more in Boca now. Aw, you should have waited!
