How Much House Can You Get for $200,000?

Syndicated — Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? According to Zillow's Chief Economist Stan Humphries, there may be.

Humphries and other economists have predicted a bottoming out of U.S. home values in 2013. Some areas that have already hit bottom are now seeing gains in home values.

The current home value hovers around $148,000, but for the first time in awhile, that number is seeing some modest gains: a 0.5 percent increase month over month and 1.8 percent increase quarter over quarter.

Despite market growth, homes still remain remarkably affordable in many parts of the country, and a price point of $200,000 can offer a home buyer quite a lot.

Here's a sampling of homes listed for $200,000 around the country.
