Buyers who successfully completed a purchase last year with their chosen buyer’s agent picked these towns, and these price ranges to secure their dream homes. While midwest and southern states consistently have lower priced home options, surprisingly, home seekers were also able to find properties in some very desirable cities and states such as Colorado and Massachusetts.

In the price range of $100-150,000, buyers found properties in Texas and South Carolina. Texas again seems to be a good place to find a home under $200,00, with buyers purchasing in Hurst Texas and Keller Texas. Other cities and states where buyers found affordable housing were Lynchburg, Virginia, Dudley, Massachusetts, Saint Joseph Michigan, and Charleston, South Carolina. The Florida purchases were in towns that many consider to be more expensive places to buy, including Saint Petersburg, and Melbourne, FL.
Colorado is becoming a less affordable place with each passing month, but last year home buyers found some deals under $200,000 in Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. Prices have increased 8% to 10% for the past four years in the Denver metro area, and the median price of Boulder homes now hovers near $1M for this quaint university town.
