Twenty least expensive homes for sale in America

January 14, 2012

While some are obsessed with which celebrity’s home is on the market or what the most glamorous listings are, we’re pausing today to look at the least expensive homes in America. Why? For two reasons- first, we hear agents frequently say that their listing has to be the worst listing in America, and they mean it when they say it, so it is interesting to have a point of comparison. Second, it is interesting to see exactly how expensive the cheapest listing in some cities is. Boston has a $100k listing as their least expensive (which apparently comes with two old television sets in the back yard?)- tell that to a Chicago agent and they’ll show you an entire block you can buy for that price.

The rise in foreclosures has had a major impact on the market and left behind a wake of blight homes waiting to be bulldozed or renovated and the following are the least expensive listings in select metros and their surrounding areas in the U.S. as found on Zillow (listed in order of price).
