How low can a home price go? We love a deal, and nothing beats a house with a price tag in the five digits. Just in time for autumn leaves to drop, we’ve fallen for some great homes available right now—all priced at under $100,000.
And they’re cute, to boot! While low in cost, these places offer plenty of curb appeal. More great news? You don’t need to compromise on style, location, or amenities just because you’re paying less for a whole home than some homebuyers put into a meager down payment. (Looking at you, San Francisco.)
Most of these dwellings measure under 2,000 square feet, meaning that they’re great starter spaces, investment properties, or second-home options. Even if a little work is involved, you can probably afford to budget for renovations to make one of these homes truly your own.
Here are 10 homes on the market right now across the country that you could call “Home, cheap, home.”
