Ready to roll up your sleeves and create a little sweat equity? The 5 least expensive homes on the market right now may just be worth a look.
Long, long-term tenant
Can you imagine having an investment property that has housed the same tenant for 20 years? That’s the story with this vintage cutie, built in 1926.
It’s small – only 1,056 square feet of living space – and the lot is tiny, at 2,400 square feet, but its possibilities are endless.
The home features two bedrooms and 1 bathroom, by the way. When you view the photos, try to look beyond the obvious cosmetic flaws because, as an investment, and with some work, this may just be a diamond in the rough.
It’s located in North Park and listed at $80,000.
Step away from that condo and check this one out
If you’re looking at condos only because they’re in your price point, why not buy a single-family home instead?
Although the seller has made a few updates, the home is being sold as-is and you won’t be able to negotiate for additional repairs. Those updates include siding, windows, some of the flooring and fresh paint.
It features 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1,392 square feet of living space and sits on a 3,497 square-foot lot (with a small, fenced backyard).
Built in 1920 and located in the North Park area, the home is listed at $82,000. Check out the photos here.
Putter in the yard
If having a big, useable yard is important to you, check out this home in downtown Billings. At only 870 square feet, the operative word here is “cozy.” It does feature 2 bedrooms, though, and 1 bathroom and loads of possibilities.
The yard is uber private, with mature trees and a patio. Water for the yard, by the way, will run you only $50 a year, according to the listing agent. The bonus, though is that there is also RV parking.
Built in 1935 and located in North Park, this home is listed at $110,000. View photos of it here.
Cute, cute, cute
The curb appeal queen of the bunch, this home is adorable. Built in 1900, the architecture alone is a magnet to vintage home shoppers. Inside you’ll find 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in 1,368 square feet of living space.
Outside, the home sits on a 2,073 square-foot lot in Billings’ South Side area.
This home is listed at $119,900 and you can view photos of it here.
Put on your DIY hat
This one is worth the sweat! Some fresh paint and new carpet will put this bungalow on its way back to its former glory. Built in 1920, you’d never guess from the outside that it holds 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 1,738 square feet of living space.
We love the attic bedroom and the period touches throughout. You may appreciate large, fenced backyard on the 7,013 square-foot lot.
Located on Billings’ South Side, this home is listed at $130,000 and you can view photos here.
