Part VI: What You Get for the Money--$600,000

The Big Finale:

Well, I had a very difficult time finding a home that has sold in the $600,000 to $700,000 price range in Barrow county, Georgia. In fact, I had to go back to September 2007 to find a sale, so this will be the last post in this series. I don't only work in Barrow county, I also work in Gwinnett and Walton counties as well, so maybe in a few weeks I'll begin a series in one of those counties. I think that will be a good comparison of what you can get for the money by just moving to a slightly different area.

What You've Missed:

In case you are just joining us, I've been doing a series over the past week of what you can get in my local market in different price ranges--at $100,000 increments. To look over the previous posts, simply click the links below. You'll find that right now especially you can get a lot of house for not much money in my area!

The Last Home:

The Features:

This beautiful home was built in 2007 and is in the city of Hoschton. It has five bedrooms and four and a half baths. The neighborhood is a golf course community. The listing agent described it as a "Southern Living Beauty" built by award-winning architect Frank Betz. The home sits on a one to two acre lot and has a full daylight basement. It's built from brick and hardi-plank siding. The family room has a stacked stone fireplace and the kitchen features cherry cabinets and dark granite countertops.

SOLD! For the price of...

It sold September of 2007 for $650,000. Interesting how much more house you can get in today's market than you could a year and a half ago, isn't it?!
