When shopping for your dream home, what's on your bucket list? Would you choose a high-rise condo with gorgeous views of the city or a house in the suburbs with a pool? On our latest episode of Listing Price, we tour three homes listed at around $882,000. 

Because home value varies so much by location, your money goes farther in some areas than others—but it all depends on what you’re looking for. This episode features a charming Colonial home just outside of Boston, a four-bedroom home on a cul-de-sac in Boise, and a small condo with stunning views of downtown Atlanta. We’ll take you on a tour of each space so you can see what this listing price can buy in three different cities.

This bright blue single-family home is located in the Boston suburbs, just nine miles from downtown. Sitting on about a quarter-acre of land, this three-bed, three-bath Colonial house has access to the busy city without all the noise and hustle.

When you walk through the front door, you’ll find an updated kitchen and dining room in a modern, minimalist style. Granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances outfit the kitchen, while a wall of gorgeous blue cabinets steals the show in the dining area. Two French doors lead from the kitchen into the backyard. 

Outside, a fenced yard and heated saltwater in-ground pool provide the perfect space for relaxing or entertaining. The outdoor area also includes upgrades like solar panels, a large shed, and a spacious covered deck.

The second floor of the home holds three large bedrooms. Two have large walk-in closets, and all three rooms share a full bathroom outfitted with a bathtub and shower. Downstairs, the walk-out basement has been fully refurnished and is ready to use as a family room, entertaining space, or home office.

The next home is located in Boise, Idaho, which is regularly ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States. The home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac and is within walking distance of shops and restaurants downtown.

Guests are greeted by a gorgeous front porch and pristine landscaping. The front door opens to a cozy living room with hardwood floors and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace. The living area leads to a large dining room outfitted with built-in cabinets. This area gets a lot of natural sunlight, so it makes a relaxing space to start your day with breakfast or a cup of coffee. Off the dining room is an enclosed kitchen. It has upgraded features like new paint, a brand-new dishwasher, and updated flooring. 

There are four bedrooms in the home, two on the first floor and two on the second. Downstairs, there is a bonus space with a gas fireplace that can be used as a second living area. Next to it, two bedrooms are joined by a full bathroom and laundry room. 

The outdoor areas of this home are ideal for anyone who enjoys entertaining. The large backyard is surrounded by a brick wall and divided into spaces for gardening and entertaining or relaxing around the fire pit. There is also a garage equipped with an outlet for electric vehicles.
