A Tudor Revival home in our neighborhood was included in a recent article in The New York Times comparing what $700,000 can buy in different areas.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the M Streets was built in 1929 and has 1,770 square feet of living space. It sits on a 0.2-acre lot on Mercedes Avenue and has a swimming pool and a detached garage with two parking spaces. The price per square foot is $395.

The home on Mercedes is compared to two others listed for almost the same price in Portland, Oregon, and Fairview, North Carolina.

In Portland, $699,000 will buy a Victorian home built in 1896, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms on a 0.1-acre lot. The price per square foot is $327, and the total square footage is 2,140 square feet.

In Fairview (about 20 miles outside Asheville), $699,900 will buy a one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom post-and-beam cottage built in 2003, on a 20-acre lot. The price per square foot is $440, and the total square footage is 1,591 square feet.
