It is said that Irvine is a good area to work and live. Here is an almost 40-year-old house in Irvine, 1,156 square feet. They somehow pack 4 bedrooms into this square footage. Just $455,000. Looks like this "starter home" needs some work.
It is said that Katy is a good place to work and live. Here is an almost 5-year-old house in Katy, 4,128 square feet. 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, pool with waterfall. Just $450,000.
Let's take a look at Compton.
This 60+ year old gem contains a massive 810 square feet of living space. Comes with chain link fence and plastic patio chairs. Price? Just $350,000.
Meanwhile, about 1500 miles east in Katy...
For $25,000 less than the Compton home, a brand-new 3,600 square foot 5-bedroom McMansion is yours.
