#31: This One’s a Bit Outdated
Before our housing market went sky high, this was probably true. We had affordable housing for many years! In fact, my five-bedroom, four-bath, 3800-square-foot house was only $280,000 four years ago, and it’s on half an acre with a woodworking shop out back.
That much space would cost about $550,000 now. Looking at comparable properties in the UK (and keeping in mind that I don’t know anything about locations), that seems right on the money. Still, I can see a difference in the quality of the homes. Ours was move-in ready, and many I see in the UK need a good bit of work.
