Generally speaking, you could buy a Very nice house in America for 300k , 300k in Uk would get you a okay at best house

And if we are talking about major citys then we can see how insane it really is ,there are literally 5 bedroom houses in Los Angeles that cost around $1 Million meanwhile trying to get a 5 bedroom house in London would cost alot more ( in central, its basically in the tens of millions)


And the british houses generally look so trash compared to American homes.

Have you looked at America on a map? They have a butt load more room to build on. Hence the cheap and cheerful ranches in the midwest.
Then again, when you look at large metropolitan areas like NYC, SF etc. the prices really arent much different, if anything, American prices come out on top.

Because the houses are built out of cardboard so you can get bigger and better for cheaper.

because you have very limited space in the UK. i’m from Canada so i know that space is cheaper when you have more of it.
