The top 10 US cities where you could buy a home for under $100,000

Buying a home isn’t usually cheap. In San Francisco, the median home costs more than $1.3 million. In New York City, it goes for nearly $700,000. Even the national median is just over $222,000.

In certain areas, though, it’s easier to find housing that’s more affordable.

Financial website 24/7 Wall Street, using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and Realtor.com, “reviewed the median home value in all census-designated places, cities and towns, with at least 100,000 residents,” to find the places with the most single-family homes valued under $100,000.

Based on the data, here are the top 10 U.S. cities with the most homes under $100,000, as well as their median home values, home sizes, household incomes and five-year population change.

South Bend, Indiana

Brownsville, Texas

Many homes on this list are located in areas that “have had slower-than-typical population growth in recent years,” the report says. Cleveland, Detroit and Buffalo, for example, “have had declining populations for decades.” That reduced demand could explain why home values in these areas are lower.

On a national scale, after all, housing is getting more expensive: U.S.home values have gone up nearly 8 percent over the past year, according to Zillow, and are predicted to rise over 6 percent within the next year.

So if you do find a home for sale that seems like a steal, approach with caution.

“Bargains definitely exist, but buyers should go in with their eyes open,”says Realtor.com chief economist Danielle Hale. In some areas, she explains, “$100,000 can buy a pretty decent home that maybe needs a little bit of updating.” In other places, however, “it might be a home that needs an awful lot of work and might be in not-yet-up-and-coming neighborhoods.”
