900 square feet? 3 bedrooms, a bath, and a garage? In 900 square feet? I've seen dining tables larger than that. Granted it was in a castle, but still . . .

900 square feet is, what, a 2 car garage? A not bad sized 1 bedroom apartment? There may be someone selling those houses, but there is no way any family could live in them.

guess I know your attitude toward the masses. Most all of us lived in smaller homes than that. And a lot of still do. What an assine statement to make. Wonder why anyone would have that outlook on life

Wow, that was a rude response to his innocent comment. Why would you call him asinine? And look how politely he responded to your snipe.

I must be used to larger houses. I grew up in 1200 square feet with 3 bedrooms. Right now my wife and I live in a thousand square foot 1849 farm house with a full unfinished basement. One bedroom, one workroom, one bath, one kitchen, one setting room, one mudporch. It's a nice sized house. Easy to heat and cool and the taxes don't kill me.

Yer tripping dude. No housing new anywhere in the USA for that price. If you don't believe it then try to buy it... Mike D.

they sell new trailers for 35,000 around here but those cost 300/month to heat. i sold an old 20-bdrm place in st joe mo last fall for 17,000 to get rid of it. new houses would have to cost more than 11000 even with free lumber. plumbing each bathroom is 3000.

I would believe the $10900.00 would either be a down payment or a typo. I believe theres a zero missing. I build some homes and believe me in this market at least 40 grand would be needed for just the materials.

there is a whole bunch for under 35k, this is a vary limited income area average family income is around 20k 45% high school drop out.

p.s. its bean up there for about 2 months now so if it were a typo i think they would have it fixed by now.
