Seeing the $100,000 mark used as a cutoff point makes me want to laugh until I cry. There hasn't been a house for under $100K in Massachusetts for 20 years.

well anonymous what part of the word Massachusetts are you seeing when you look at the word Texas? Last time I checked there was about 2,000 miles between the two.

Yes, there is. That might be why real estate is worth so much more here.

I'm not sure where you got your info, but University Park & Highland Park are definitely not under $100,000. Check out www.ebby.com for actual prices of these areas.

Made me laugh too. $618,000 would be the cutoff for average priced 3 bd/2 bath home here. The absolute minimun is $400,000 for houses in my town. You might find a studio in a highrise for $100K!
