How much house you can buy for $325,000

  • Zillow

    While this price point is about 74 percent higher than the national median home value, which is currently $187,000 according to Zillow, that doesn't mean you'll get a mansion in every market.

    You may be able to get a four-bedroom, three-bathroom house with a heated pool and hot tub in Tucson, but if you're shopping in Manhattan, you may find you can only afford a 315-square-foot ground floor studio co-op.

    The amenities available in $325,000 homes vary as much as the size of the homes themselves. In more densely-packed cities like New York and Chicago, you'll be lucky to get a balcony or other small outdoor space with your home. In less-crowded metro areas like Atlanta or Portland, you might get a lot more space for outdoor entertaining with a large yard, deck or porch.
