That exact house would go for $500-600k in this area. Still not worth living in Texas though!

EDIT: Similar listing in the same area. Even cheaper as it's more of a fixer.

Friend of mine down near Houston does this to me too. For what I'm looking to spend up here, I could have my own McMansion down there. Another friend keeps trying to talk me into Jacksonville, FL which is a huge nope.

it works out great for you not just for being that close to bars, but also you can low ball the **** out of that thing and not worry about anyone else coming over the top.

the plywood floors really add a nice touch upstairs.

You can find awesome homes for prices like that in Atlanta as well. I don't know about Texas, but I lived in Atlanta for 13 years and it's a great city (aside from the lack of public transport).

If it wasn't for the importance of good schools we'd have a house already. About 100k difference between neighboring school districts.

I don't understand the methodology of 'I can buy a mansion if I move there'.

better yet, move to the cheaper location, but buy a house that's modestly larger than you would normally buy, and significantly less money. you skip all the stupid things that aren't really surface costs that come with a home that's twice the size you have now, now you need to fill it with things, heat it, cool it, insure it, maintain it, clean it.

https://www.realtor.com/realestatean...7_M15439-42598

the above home is $850,000

https://www.realtor.com/realestatean...8_M85190-60551

this one in Houston is higher, but much more lavishly appointed, more land, more home, more everything, and in a really nice neighborhood.

https://www.realtor.com/realestatean...8_M80796-33063

this one is nearly half the price, just a bit less appointed, but you get the land, and a similar sized home in the same area.

you go from a 4000 mortgage to a 2100 mortgage. in a year that $24000 in your pocket. you can get a RS5, take a swank ass vacation, redo the bathrooms (maybe add a washroom for guests), and still have money left over to invest in your crypto asset of choice.
