We came across two separate news pieces yesterday that really got us thinking about our own apartment's location, size and price. Knowing that housing prices vary wildly across the country (and along with them, people's perception of prices), we wanted to get Apartment Therapy readers to weigh in with their thoughts.

We read yesterday about Austin's low house prices in comparison with other large U.S. cities, and enjoyed viewing a piece the Statesman ran entitled "What you get for $275,000". We then saw the New York Daily News story on Apartment Therapy's teeny-tiny division winner of the smallest coolest contest, Kevin's Triple Threat. What do you think about your city's house and apartment prices? Do you think they are on par with other big cities around the country, or way above or below average? Do you live in an area with prices that might be considered high for the size of your place? If so, what are the factors that contribute to the price? And most importantly, do you feel like the price you pay for where you live is worth it? Let us know why!
