The median selling price of a home in the United States was $188,900 in January 2017. What that gets you varies quite drastically from place to place depending on location, population and popularity as well as tourism. For example, that price may only get a place in Manhattann which is 450 square feet while you may get a spacious bungalow in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
You can find a huge property outside of Detroit, Michigan but it isn't a great area as far as crime and safety is concerned. That price may vary quite a lot in the size of the space you can get. Make sure you check out the median housing cost of the area you want to move to.
