House Hunting? Here’s What A $300,000 Budget Buys You, From Downtown To The Suburbs

Searching for the perfect home isn’t always as easy as it should be. It’s easy to get overwhelmed, especially in Columbus. The real estate market boom is still going strong, and with so many options, it’s hard to even know where to begin.

But don’t worry fam. I’ve done a little bit of the work for you. If you’re wondering how far your $300,000 budget will go around the city, I’ve got good news: there are so many interesting options waiting for you. Your dream home could be waiting for you below.

1642 S 4th St, Columbus, OH, 43207

Neighborhood/Community: Hungarian Village
Specs: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,774 square feet
Price: $250,000
What We Love: Not only does this home sit on a fantastic double lot, but it’s also been completely updated. Moving into this place would be a dream and we especially love just how much space this Hungarian Village gem has to offer.

1067 E Whittier St, Columbus, OH, 43206

Neighborhood/Community: Southern Orchards
Specs: 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2,034 square feet
Price: $299,000
What We Love: I don’t even know where to start with this beauty, but I’ll give it my best shot. This home is modern and elegant, but it still holds on to those early 1900s vibes. From the original fireplace o the gorgeous hardwood floors, this home is conveniently located nearby German Village, Olde Town East, and downtown. The owner’s suite on the third floor is by far my favorite, full of beautiful light and a fantastic ensuite bathroom.

75 Euclid Ave, Columbus, OH, 43201

Neighborhood/Community: University District
Specs: 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 2,206 square feet
Price: $298,900
What We Love: House hunting for an investment opportunity? This University District property comes with two houses on the parcel. One already generates an income of $1645/month. The other will definitely require some serious work, but I have a feeling that you’re up for the challenge.

What We Love: It’s not every day that you come across a property that so easily blends country and city living. Sitting on 1.45 acres, this incredible farmhouse has so much potential. It’s going to be someone’s dream home and let’s face it, the proximity to the world-class shopping and eating at nearby Easton certainly makes it all the more intriguing.

570 S Front St Apt 101, Columbus, OH, 43215

Neighborhood/Community: Brewery District
Specs: 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 864 square feet

There are so many perks to living in the neighborhood, including easy access to the CBUS, scores of restaurants, and all of the downtown fun (whenever we can start having events again). If you end up snagging this incredible property, please invite me over for a cookout in that fantastic outdoor space.
