It isn’t tough to find examples of ever-rising home prices. If fact, they’re just about everywhere you look!
But, there’s hope on the horizon. In fact, we’re here to deliver some good news: We’ve spotted 10 homes scattered throughout the country, all currently available for the bargain-basement price of less than $100,000. And they’re all surprisingly great in their own way.
True, they aren’t stocked with every latest amenity and could use a bit of love, but they have solid bones and would make great places to live—while not sacrificing your bank account for decades to come.
With that, we invite bargain hunters to join us on our journey into homes with five-figure price tags…
