If you’re currently experiencing house hunting fatigue, or if you’re just curious about the market in Columbus right now, let us help. Here are 7 of our favorite picks for what a $100,000 dollar budget will get you around Columbus.
Neighborhood/Community: Driving Park Specs: 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1,216 square feet Price: $99,900 What we love: Yes, this home has some pretty intense teal carpet. But guess what? That’s nothing one weekend and some strong friends can’t fix. The best part of this house is the enclosed all-seasons room. Just picture yourself with a cup of coffee and a good book enjoying a beautiful afternoon out there.
Neighborhood/Community: Linden Specs: 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 984 square feet Price: $82,900 What we love: This Linden cutie is basically a blank slate. There is so much potential to create a really inviting home here my friends. Plus, the bathroom has been remodeled and it has fantastic blue subway tiling. Move-in ready and under budget. What more could you ask for?
Neighborhood/Community: Eastmoor Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, 1,180 square feet Price: $90,000 What we love: This retro, 1940s home has refinished floors, fresh paint, and a super retro bathroom, complete with pink tiles. The kitchen could use an update, but that just means you get to put your own unique spin on the place.
Neighborhood/Community: Scioto Southland Specs: 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1,380 square feet Price: $90,000 What we love: The interior of this south Columbus home is spacious and full of light. But the thing we love most about this place is the massive, fenced-in yard. Can’t you picture the adorable dog you’re going to adopt running around back there?
Neighborhood/Community: St. Marys Specs: 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2,055 square feet Price: $99,000 What we love: This house has a very vintage Euro vibe. The rooms are spacious and full of incredible details like the massive fireplace, parquet floors, and original woodwork. This home will definitely be a project, but the potential is out of this world.
Neighborhood/Community: Edgewood Acres Specs: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,404 square feet Price: $79,900 What we love: I can’t get over how bright and airy this home is. All of the hard stuff is already done, including newer windows, electric, plumbing, and mechanicals. All you have to do is jump in and start decorating. I can envision your Pinterest board already.
Neighborhood/Community: Argyle Park Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 858 square feet Price: $105,000 What we love: Okay so technically this one is a tiny bit over budget, but I felt like it deserved an honorable mention. The house has a new roof with a warranty, a new furnace, new front deck, hardwood floors, and a brand new bathroom and kitchen.
