I just recently began playing the guitar again and im really enjoying myself. I currently borrowing my buddies fender tele plus but its just a temporary guitar until i can get my own. I really like the sound of strats and i cant find a accurate price for a standard strat nothing special. So my question is how much are strats on average?

It depends on where you live. I live in Turkey so they are not cheap like around 1700$ but look at musicians friend for the standard price.
Let's go back to five billion bpm and see how good i am.

American is more expensive, but better quality. Mexicans are cheaper, but don't have the quality of an American made strat.

If you're just beginning (or getting back into it), I wouldn't bother with an American Strat yet unless you've got money to burn. You're looking in the $800-900+ range new in most cases for a basic American Strat, whereas a Mexican Strat, which you probably won't be able to tell the difference between as a beginner, will be hundreds less.

And honestly, whenever someone who's just starting asks me what I think they should get as a beginner-type guitar, I always steer them towards the Fender Strat Pack. It includes everything you'll need for a while and you can always upgrade later, but if you fall out of practice or decide it's not your thing, you only spent about $350 for everything, not $400-500+ on just a guitar (Mexican Strat).
