I'm pretty sure most americans make under $50k a year. Anyone who could drop $400k on a house would be pretty rich in my opinion. For example, here's a $400,000 house in my area. http://www.homes.com...OUSTON_TX_77068

That must have meant its min mortgage payment was 400K not the entire house. tbh I was actually exaggerating I can't even find one house at that price in my area. I found a few 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartments but no houses.

No, the entire house.

 

2 bedroom apartments here rent out for around $600 a month. You can pretty easily get a 2 bed/1 bath house for $40k.

Well that's odd. I just grabbed the first decent looking house on homes.com at 400k.

I liked the first house and last house, both had rather nice aesthetics. Beaches get surf in Texas?

Cheapest house in my old area although we still live near that area.

A bit of surf. The southern beaches are best. Galveston is normally 2-3', but down in South Padre and such you can get bigger waves.

 

That's a very nice house. >.>

Yeah, I'm definitely moving to the US later, those are some mighty fine houses. Won't get anything like that for such a price here in the Netherlands.

You have to remember, you're probably going to make less though.

Well yeah, thats how the property market works, I knew the market was weaker in the US but I didn't know it was that low! Australia has a rather good market but the problem is there is little movement at the moment because we all have our eyes on the US to see if the global crisis is over.

I could make 2 mil go a long way in the US and live life in luxury but then keep some houses in Australia to keep some money flowing.

There is a difference between equity, high property ownership and cashflow. the first two I have a plenty the third goes towards maintaining the first two.
