Property Kick in the Teeth

Just for fun, after some comments over at Jay's site, I thought I'd take a quick look to see what I could get in my area.

Based on one website ( , and in either my current zip code or four surrounding towns, with any number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the cheapest non-condo/non-townhome/non-mobile or manufactured, non-attached home I could purchase is mine for just $215,000! (The link wouldn't work).

A cozy little 3bdrm, 46 years old, 1/4 acre, annual taxes of over $2k.

I realize this isn't as bad as say, NYC, but for someone who's always lived in a house and would really really like to get her looks like it's going to be a while longer.
