  With $250,000, you can buy a sprawling suburban home in
  Dallas,
  Houston,
  or Austin. In
  San
  Jose and Los
  Angeles, you can buy a mobile home.

  We teamed up with Trulia to look at similarly-priced homes
  in the 25 most populous cities in the US, from 
  notoriously-expensive San Francisco to Indianapolis and
  Columbus, two of 
  the most
  affordable cities for millennials to buy a home. The most
  populous city, New York, is also 
  the priciest. Previous reporting from Business Insider's
  Hillary Hoffower shows 
  the Big Apple is even getting too expensive for millionaires.

  We ordered cities based on population data from the National League
  of Cities, in order from least to greatest. When possible, we

  addition, some cities' markets only listed homes slightly higher
  or lower than $250,000.

  It's also important to note that even within the same city, the
  cost of living can vary significantly from neighborhood to
  neighborhood - but these photos should give you a better idea of
  what a quarter million dollars will get you in 25 major US
  cities.
