The value and price of your home varies depending on your location. There’s no right or wrong, I just thought it’d be interesting to see what this price tag gets you based on where you purchase a home.

I searched the country to bring you five homes priced at $300,000, but that differ in style, size and location. I think you'll find the differences between the homes quite fascinating! Take a look at what we found. I'm curious to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.


Saco, ME (Northeast)

Quick Facts: 3 beds 2.5 baths 1,540 sqft

This single family home located in Saco, ME is a nice size. It’s also just a short distance to nearby beaches and golf courses.

ME Kitchen

The kitchen has beautiful hardwood floors and matching wood cabinets. The stainless steel appliances and kitchen island make the smaller size not seem so bad.

A quaint but bright sunroom with beautiful green paint and white window trim. This looks like the perfect room for getting lost in a good book!

Check out the unique ceiling design and those big, beautiful windows! It looks like a very cozy and comfortable spot for watching the big game or entertaining guests.

Installing a brick patio is never a bad idea. The landscaping could use a little work, but it does have a huge backyard with an attractive wood fence. It’s the perfect space for playing with the dog or kids!

Phoenix, Arizona (Southwest)

Quick Facts: 3 beds 2 baths 1,541 sqft

The exterior paint color on this single family home in Phoenix, Arizona is beautiful.

We love how the muted blue looks against the natraul green and neutral colors found in nature. The covered front porch and white picket fence welcomes you inside a home filled with ample natural light. 

AZ Kitchen

The kitchen has a southwestern vibe to it, and while it’s a bit dated, it fits the location. The mini kitchen island and bright natural light are definitely bonuses to have when you’re working with a smaller kitchen.

AZ Living Room

There’s a decent size living area in this home that includes several lovely windows. We like the area rug that’s draped over the tile floors because it makes the room a bit cozier.

AZ Backyard

If you live in a warm climate than a backyard and patio are a must! This AZ home is lucky enough to have some green grass and ample space to sit and enjoy the weather.


Sacramento, CA (West)

Quick Facts: 3 beds 2 baths 1,127 sqft

Last but not least, we have a single family home in Sacramento, CA that’s located in a gated Mediterranean-style community. The owners did a nice job up keeping the home exterior and surrounding landscape.

CA Kitchen

A beautiful kitchen with gray painted walls, wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The large window above the sink and glass front cabinets add some flair to the boxy space.

CA Living

We love the nice high ceilings in this living room! The neutral color scheme and large windows make this room feel bright and cheery. 

CA Backyard

The backyard could use a little love, but at least there’s a good amount of space to work with if they ever wanted to update the patio. It’s got to be nice to having those windows bring in oodles of natural light!


Determining where you want to buy a home and live is a big decision.
