What You Get for the Money

11 06 2008

Around these parts, we watch a lot of HGTV. We especially love What You Get for the Money, which takes viewers to different regions of the country to see what their money will buy them. We thought it would be fun to make this a local game and take a look at what’s available in different price points in the metro area. Today, we’ll start with $250,000 dollars. Below are three properties that have all sold in the past month in the metro area.
