Cute and Cheap: 5 of the Nicest Homes in the Country All Priced Below $100K

Inflation is real—and it might make it seem like the dream of homeownership is out of reach.

To this we say, “Chin up, Buttercup!”

You can find a decent domicile priced below $100,000. It all depends on where you want to live. Plenty of sweet little communities offer nice dwellings for less than six figures.

Don’t believe us? Then look at what we’ve found: five of the nicest little homes in the country, all on the market right now for $100,000 or less.

One of the many advantages is that they’ve been painted and spruced up before going to market, so the majority are move-in ready. But at these prices, you will likely have plenty of cash left over to make an update or two.

Here are five great bargains in the home department!

Price: $95,000
Motor City marvel: There’s a bunch of extra space in this brick bungalow from the 1930s. Thanks to the full basement, it feels much bigger than its 1,150 square feet.

That basement could use a little work, but it has plumbing, a wet bar, a fireplace, a workbench, and plenty of storage.

The three-bedroom residence is mostly immaculate. Recently remodeled and painted, it has gleaming wood floors, a built-in corner hutch, and a brand-new kitchen with a back porch entrance. The large primary suite even comes with a sitting room/study.

There’s plenty of curb appeal, and the home is close to schools, restaurants, and highways. To top it off, the price was recently reduced by $4,000.

Saffron sweetness: This mellow yellow farmhouse has been around since 1960, but the inside is surprisingly modern. It boasts fun, designer touches like a sputnik chandelier in the dining area, cool pendant lights over the updated kitchen island, a tile backsplash, and new butcher-block counters.

The 1,052-square-foot home has three bedrooms, each with a large window. Attractive luxury vinyl plank flooring runs throughout the house.

There’s a large backyard perfect for outdoor activities and barbecues.

Robstown, TX


Price: $100,000
Tantalizing two-story: It’s easy to be charmed by the cozy front porch and dormer windows on the facade of this cottage from 1935. The interior is equally appealing, with new carpeting and attractively painted walls with contrasting white molding.

The cottage measures 1,135 square feet and offers two bedrooms and one bath. The bedrooms have more closet space than you’d expect, and that bathroom has a new sink with storage space.

There’s a full basement as well as an updated kitchen with plenty of light streaming in through the windows above the sink.

The listing says the lot is 3,128 square feet, but notes there’s “an additional lot for added yard space.”

Located in western New York, Lakewood isn’t far from Lake Erie, and even closer to Chautauqua Lake. In that part of the country, you’ll enjoy all four seasons in living color.

Lakewood, NY


Price: $74,500
Twee in Texas: This itty-bitty, 384-square-foot, one-bedroom home has a lot to recommend. We like the double-paned windows and a remote-controlled, window-mounted air conditioner.

The updated kitchen has a custom epoxy countertop and backsplash. There are lovely green cabinets, new paint, vinyl plank flooring, and the cutest little portable washer/dryer you’ve ever seen.

The size of the lot is another pleasant surprise—it’s three lots put together totaling 6,750 square feet. You may also be surprised by how close it is to the Flat Creek boat launch on Lake Palestine, where you can enjoy fishing, boating, and other water-based activities.

Chandler, TX


Price: $85,000
Remarkably roomy: We saved the biggest for last. Be prepared to swoon over the graceful porch and the Victorian gingerbread trim out front.

This spacious 2,459-square-f00t home from 1930 has three bedrooms and two baths. Bonus areas include a den/library with built-in shelves, a spacious room that can been used as an office, and a large utility room.

The updated kitchen includes a breakfast bar, and the dining room has wood flooring with a lovely inlay design. The primary suite enjoys the privacy of being upstairs, snuggled up in the rafters, with a nice view of the neighborhood.

Raymond is a village with 950 residents, so if it’s small-town living you’re after, you’ve come to the right place.

Raymond, IL
