What Can You Buy for $485,000?

New York Times Seeks Information About Local Housing Market - Contacts Christine Kipp and Jay Kipp Do you ever wonder how far your real estate dollar would go in another town or another state?  $475,000 will fetch a charming 4 bedroom house on 5 acres along the shores of Lake Michigan.  In Carson, NM, $485,00 will buy you a 3 bedroom adobe home on a 40 acre lot.   And in our very own Pioneer Square in downtown Seattle, $480,000 is a bargain for our Urban Loft listing.  Originally built in 1904, the building was converted to condos in the mid-1990s.   Industrial finishes mixed with original brick work and a roof top deck make this a great buy in any market.  Visit the New York Times  for photos and information.
