$100k homes; what kind of deal can you get for your dollar?

WILMIGNTON, NC (WECT) – Homes in the Southeast have an appeal to college students, families and snow birds alike.  From the beaches in Wilmington and Charleston to the city life of Charlotte each location is unique – just like the houses in each city.

Each area has a variety of homes for first time home buyers or those looking to spend less than $200,000.  Despite the locations, it appears $120,000 can get you three bedrooms and at least two full bathrooms.

Often times you can catch a bargain in this price range if a little work needs to be done or if the home was put up for foreclosure.  Though it may look like a mess when you open the door, a little paint and cleaning will make it look new again.

Whether you're looking for a vacation home or are moving east, homes in his range will typically give you a kitchen with appliances and plenty of cabinet space, a dining room, and a master bedroom with walk-in closets.
