well I don't know where you live but I'm a Realtor here in St. Louis where prices are relatively cheap and a 3 bedroom house in good condition here would be at least $120K or more so 80 is a great deal! Right now is the best time to buy! the housing market has pretty much come to a halt - which means that sellers are depserate to get rid of their homes! Many of them will take thousands of dollars less than what their house listed for simply becuase it's so hard to sell right now. Last year at this time the sellers owned the market and pretty much could get anything they wanted for thier house. My advice to you - if you're looking to buy a house buy now rather than later!

Lucky you. When we were house shopping, most 3 bedroom homes were well over $100,000 and many had bad roofs or were falling apart. We were lucky to get our house at $92,000.

Housing prices are outrageous now. When I was buying my first house back in 1974, we bought a brand new 3 bedroom for $32,000. This year we built a new home. So far it has cost $200,000 and it's still climbing. This house is smaller than that first house. Our new one has nicer things in it than that one did, but look at the difference in the price! I don't believe wages have gone up in keeping with that, have they?
