Properties for $400,000 – The New York Times

Properties for $400,000 – The New York Times > Great Homes and Destinations > Slide Show > Slide 7 of 20



A four-bedroom house in Ponderosa Forest, a suburban neighborhood outside the beltway that encircles the core of Houston, is on the market for $399,000.

Thanks to Burbed reader James for sharing this. He thought that readers here would be interested in knowing more about what $400,000 can buy in Houston.

Personally, I’m just disappointed that these NY elitests once again forgot to show off what can be purchased in the Bay Area (Real or otherwise) for $400,000.

Anyway, who wants to live in Houston, Chicago, or New Haven (featured in this link)?

This week, Burbed will show you what $400,000 can buy in the Bay Area.

Thanks James!

Needs your TLC. This is your chance to own a PRICED-TO-SELL-FAST home conveniently located near freeways, fire station, schools, restaurants & shops, but bring your toolbox because this house needs some work. This is great for big family having a big backyard, bonus bedroom and bathroom and in a quiet neighbohood. A once in a lifetime opportunity. Desperate owner needs action!

Burbed generally doesn’t venture much into the East Bay, after all it is fly over land. That said, Burbed reader James sent this great find in.

Usually Realtors, professionals at the craft of prose and poetry write in such amazing language that it takes scholars years to decrypt the hidden meaning.

This Realtor is clearly aiming at the common man. He’s helping make housing accessible to everyone. “Located near freeways, fire station” – the honest is refreshing. “Desperate owner needs action!” – wow, now the realtor is headed in the risque direction. Very bold. Very very bold.

Props to you for this literary work. People will be discussing this for years. Thanks James for this find!
