Wins for the Thrifty: 11 Ultra-Affordable Homes Priced Under $100,000

By August 5, 2015No Comments






It’s tough out there for the thrifty. Costs are up across the board—from beef to nuts. And as we’re sure you’ve heard, real estate isn’t exactly immune. Stepping into a bidding war and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a home runs contrary to the core beliefs of a penny pincher.

Prudent buyers, however, needn’t sit on the sidelines forever. There are places in the U.S. where you can score a home for less than six figures. And the homes aren’t all of the unsightly boarded-up, brown-lawn variety.

We plucked 11 beauties from the bargain bin to show that stingy buyers should keep hope alive. All of the homes below demonstrate curb appeal aplenty while minimizing the damage to your wallet. Let us know which deal suits you best in the comments below.
