    Question From..To..(2)

    (Context: prices)

    "House are available from $100,000 on up."
    "House are available from $100,000 and up."

    Are there any differences between these two sentences?

    Re: From..To..(2)

    There is no significant difference in our part of the world. I don't know about Europe and Asia.

    In Canada we usually use 'and up.'

    I would have said that the use of the word "from" means that any more information after the price is redundant.

    Houses are available [starting] from $100,000.

    Houses are available at prices of $100,000 and up.
