      Bought our house at the end of MS2 (I know, I know) for $175K in 2012. Current Zestimate is $302K. Home down the street (similar size/finish out) just sold for asking price (had 2 offers of $340K!) on the day it was listed.

      We're selling next spring--dear sweet baby Jesus let this market hold just a little bit longer, because that would pay off the med school loans and then some!

        One house, one spouse! LOL.

        The places we considered at $300 in 2006, before deciding to rent for residency, are now going for about $250. Our current home is now valued on Redfin at about $150 more than we paid in 2009. Doesn't matter much though. We won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

          Residency in San Antonio, bought in 2001 for $74K, sold in 2004 for $80K. (Still cheaper than renting equivalent housing)  Now Zillow says $174K

          Northern Virginia SFH, bought in 2004 for $445K, kept it.  Zillow says it's worth $708K.

          San Diego condo, bought in 2008 for $431K, kept it.  Zillow says it's worth $631K.

          San Diego SFH, bought in 2012 for $778K, now Zillow says $1.2M.

          We've bought other places as pure investment properties and gotten better cash on cash returns.  Still, we've gotten decent appreciation by holding onto previous residences.

              Ok, I will share mine too..

              #1)  A small house (rancher) in a medium-sized university town in the midwest for undergrad --> medschool with help from parents, had roommates for all 7 years.  Purchase mid-2003 for 190K, sold in 2010 in the midst of the post-2008 housing crash for 170K (ouch! supposedly recession-proof town).  Resident/fellow who purchased from me sold again in 2013 for 183K.  Current zestimate = 307K.

              #2)  Didn't learn my lesson, purchased house mid-residency in early 2012 on the East Coast in a somewhat shady, but up & coming neighborhood for 180K.  I was getting married that summer; marriage worked out (knock on wood), but the handshake fellowship offer fell thru.  Had to apply & move out of town and rather than being a long-distance landlord, sold after just over 2 years mid-2014 for 220K.  Luck, pure luck.  Current zestimate 267K.

              Finally learned my lesson.  Rented during fellowship (despite a 'handshake' job offer at the institution where I landed), got a better private-practice job, bought 6 months into the job.

              #3)  Current home in a small-medium midwestern town, purchased for 270K.  Happy with it, though lots of land (1+ acres) may come with privacy, it's also a lot more maintenance than I expected.  Current zestimate = 367K.

                Residency (I know!) bought for $86K, Sold for $115 3 years later. Zillow says $92, but all other houses around are $150-190K

                Bought a year prior to getting to first job (I know!), $390, lived in it for 8 years, still own it and rent it out, Zillow is wrong but says it is worth $783K (maybe worth $700K on a good day, I would think). Renting it out.

                Bought in 2013, $870K, Zillow is wrong and says $2.257M; Likely more like S1.7-1.8M

                We've done well.
