As a professional web developer, I agree with aspects of both arguments.
If you want to scrape from the bottom of the barrel, you can outsource a site for very cheap. You'll license a popular design used by between a few hundred and tens of thousands of other sites, and you'll get mediocre performance and mediocre support. This is actually the best route for many people just starting out.
I also know of people who have paid $30k, and ended up with not much better than just that.
However, I would say that, on average, for a small to medium sized business for which their ONLINE PRESENCE IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF THEIR BUSINESS , Rachel is giving very realistic estimates.
NOTE that many businesses are NOT this type of business - they just use the website to show a phone number and hours of operation, and their professionalism is NOT judged by the quality of their site.
