Homes in Arizona can reach prices of almost half a million dollars. Many Arizona homes are built to deal with very high heat, and need to be constructed of pale brickwork so they don't absorb too much of the heat.

With the third lowest cost of living in the United States, Arkansas would be a great place to set up your home in order to save for things like travel and re-decorating. Due to a lack of severe weather, many homes in Arkansas (97% to be specific) do not have a basement and instead have a garage.

As the home imagined by AI is next to a large set of steps, we can imagine that this home, like many others in California, is perched on a steep hill. A home like this in California could be expected to sell for almost three quarters of a million dollars! A lot of money for a relatively small home.
