Where in the USA can you buy a nice house for under $50,000?
If you are living on a fixed income, does it make sense to move to an area where the cost of living is lower?6 years ago - 6 answers
We live in Steuben County, NY. The most expensive house in our town is $125,000 and that is for over a 3,000 sq. ft. federal style home. You can easily buy a home here for $40,000. In fact we just bought an income home this past summer for $20,000 with 2 apartments. Yes, it was "up to snuff" so to speak and a nice all around home.6 years ago
Of course it does, but the days of $50,000 homes have long gone -- you probably can't even get a mobile home on a piece of property for that.by Diane B - 6 years ago
I'd say yes but a $50,000 home? not likely..My parents bought their first home in 1987 for $42,500.00 it's probably worth 3 times that now.by Chris B - 6 years ago
A small Midwest town such as Joplin, MO. There are still liveable homes in the $50,000 region here. Nothing fancy at that price but liveable places in decent neighborhoods.by bostonianinmo - 6 years ago
