Portland, Oregon — $1,275

Which one would you choose?
These listings were updated and clarified to show more accurately what you get for the money.
A few others were swapped because the deal really WAS too good to be true and possibly a scam (lookin' at you Portland and Asheville). H/t to our commenters for pointing this out
