You can't get a starter home in a decent area of a decent city for less than $600k (and a $600k starter home would be on the outskirts of Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas, etc -- a starter home in Boston or New York City or Seattle is gonna be more like $1MM)

Starter homes on average across the nation excluding jewyork and commifornia are 200k-300k(brand new).Yea you can find 100k-150k homes but you have to live in Idaho or the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma and the houses are old, These low prices are in high crime areas or low pop areas. They cannot even afford that when they are working for 14/hr working minimum wage, they are already on the edge paying for their 1 bedroom apartment.

But there is something millennials can do, this applies to young men as most women wouldn't even think about doing this. You buy a tacoma or reliable truck with a camper shell and you live out of your truck, get a job and live in a planet fitness parking lot. You then save up as much money as you can in 5 years to buy crypto or invest in something that will make you money.

A 900 sq ft condo in my area costs ~$200k. A 1500 sq ft town home $275k. This is in the Mexican infested areas too. Add 50-75k onto those numbers if you wanna be in the good part of town. When my parents were starting out they were going to buy a car and bought a house instead because the payments were close to the same. Their first house was like 70k in the late 80s. Boomers and spics completely fucked the housing market

Where I live a starter home is $200,000. Some start.

>> No.16812691

>>16812625

so you put down 5% ($10k) and your monthly mortgage payments are only around $1200-1400 depending on property taxes. half of that is tax deductible too, i think most millennials don't understand that.

yeah i wouldn't advise buying a $200k house on minimum wage lol. but if you have a "decent" income of 50k/year plus some savings, or if you're a married couple and make 50k+ combined (national household average), then you should be able to pull it off. unless you have like $200k of student debt or something.

From my link:

> In a recent analysis, we found that 53 million workers ages 18 to 64—or 44% of all workers—earn barely enough to live on. Their median earnings are $10.22 per hour, and about $18,000 per year. These low-wage workers are concentrated in a relatively small number of occupations, including retail sales, cooks, food and beverage servers, janitors and housekeepers, personal care and service workers (such as child care workers and patient care assistants), and various administrative positions.
