    Want to buy property for $350,000? What you get will largely depend on where you look.

    In pricey urban markets like New York City, $350,000 might buy you a studio or one-bedroom apartment. The same goes for Seattle, another in-demand market with high home values.

    Head out to the Midwest, however, and you can get a lot more bang for your buck. In Detroit, that amount can buy you a historic castle-like mansion with six bedrooms, original stained glass windows and fireplaces.

    At almost double the U.S. median home value -- which is currently about $183,000, according to Zillow -- most of these $350,000 properties come with sought-after features like stainless steel appliances and fireplaces.
