Why is this house so cheap?

In fact, almost all of the houses in Mckinney, Texas seem to be so cheap relative to quality. A condo in California would cost the same as a family house in Texas.

    When it comes to homes you get what you pay for. Trailers do not offer the craftsmanship and sturdiness of a well-built house. Site built homes are more structurally sound than trailers/mobile homes/sectional homes. Site built homes appreciate in value whereas trailers depreciate. There are some extremely nice trailers and many very rough site built homes -- but generally speaking a trailer is valued less than a house. If you're in the market for a new home, before deciding whether you want a "cheap" house or a trailer decide how long you plan on living in it. Also consider the whether in your area -- if it's prone to earthquakes, tornadoes, or hurricanes I'd recommend going with a site built -- it will withstand better.

    Every houses in Texas are cheaps and there's Work in Texas but no people, because it's huge and California has a lot of expensive houses because California is for visitors, explorers. And that's why it had many people.

    Apparently you have never been to Texas. It is miserable place to live. Or even visit.

    It also looks like a subdivision, not "quality". Houses there tend to be built with cheap materials.

    You could not pay me to live there.

    Demand. Much higher demand for those condos in CA than the homes in TX.

    Home prices are localized. You can't compare a home in Texas with one in California.

    property prices, nation-wide, are based on four things;

    size, condition, features and location.
