Single-family homes in most major metropolitan areas can easily cost buyers more than $600,000 these days.
But in smaller markets like Marietta, Georgia, and Cincinnati, Ohio, spending over a half-million dollars will buy a property with a reasonable amount of space and luxury.
Since $600,000 will get buyers many different types of residences depending on the location, people with a budget that size may want to take some extra time deciding where to lay down roots. Ask some key questions: Is it more important to live in a big city or have room for a growing family? Is access to private outdoor space an important factor?
These and other considerations will make choosing between a 650-square-foot studio on Manhattan's Upper East Side and a 3,510-square-foot colonial in Philadelphia much easier -- if you have that kind of choice.
