Why splash out on a property when you can snap up one of these bargain buys?
If you’re struggling to get a foot on the elusive property ladder, these bargain homes could be just the ticket. Though there's been a reported bounce in the market following Brexit, there are still plenty of incredible deals to be found.

Some require a little elbow grease to whip them into shape, while others are in surprisingly good condition, but at £30,000 or under, they all offer a very affordable way to buy a piece of the property pie…
Just over half a mile from Hartlepool train station and close to primary and secondary schools, this period house is in a great location for families. To the rear, it also features a small courtyard with enough space to dine alfresco in the warmer months.
Inside, the layout has plenty of promise, with a reception room, kitchen, dining room and utility cupboard found downstairs, while upstairs there's a bathroom and two bedrooms.
However, the finish of the property is a bit of a mishmash. The bathroom, bedrooms and reception areas have been tastefully decorated, though it looks as though whoever renovated the property ran out of cash before getting to the hallway or kitchen as these areas are definitely in need of work.
The property is on St. Oswalds Street, Hartlepool, and is listed with Robinsons for £29,950.
If you're searching for a slice of village life, this next home could tick all your boxes. Situated in the quaint burgh of Newmillns, the first-floor flat is found in a charming row of brick terraces.
Bright and airy with a neutral colour scheme throughout, the two-bed property is the perfect blank canvas for a new buyer to put their stamp on. The galley kitchen and bathroom are both reasonably modern and the spacious lounge is flooded with light.
Outside, there's a garden, while on-street parking is available to the front of the building. All in all, we reckon this generous flat is move-in ready!
This property is on Kilnholm Street in Newmilns, East Ayrshire, and is listed with Donald Ross Residential for offers in excess of £29,000.
Situated within walking distance of Ferryhill town centre in the North East, this redbrick terraced house is in pretty good condition. Offering three well-proportioned bedrooms and a large bathroom, the layout is ideal for a young family.
While some of the decor is a little dated, the structure doesn't need any major renovation works other than a few cosmetic changes. Helpfully, the property comes complete with a modern combi boiler and uPVC windows, so it should be relatively energy-efficient.
To the rear, there's a sizeable yard that with a little imagination could be transformed into an attractive outdoor oasis.
This property is on Faraday Street in Ferryhill, County Durham, and is listed with Livin Housing for £18,750.
With easy access to bus route and rail links, this ground-floor flat could be a lucrative investment. The layout comprises two bedrooms, an open-plan living and dining area, and a three-piece bathroom.
While some of the fixtures need updating, there are some characterful period features that add charm to the flat, in particular a stained-glass window in the hallway.
What's more, last year, three other two-bedroom properties on the same road were sold for between £62,500 and £71,000, so budding developers could stand to make a decent profit.
This property is on Talbot Street in Rishton, Lancashire, and is listed with Keenans Estate Agents for £30,000.
If you’re able to snap up this attractive house when it goes to auction for somewhere near the guide price, you could stand to make a tidy profit. It does need a bit of work, but other dwellings on the road have sold for more than double the asking price (one was even snapped up for £79,500 in 2016) so there’s definite potential to add value.
Sitting at the front of the property, the living room has been nicely decorated with dark wood flooring, while there's also a separate dining room on the ground floor too. The kitchen is where you’ll need to invest the most as the current units are outdated and in need of a revamp.
On the plus side, the bathroom upstairs appears to be relatively new and so you shouldn’t need to spend much there. Also on the first floor, the four bedrooms are in reasonably good condition, though the box room is probably best used for storage.
This property is found on Bolckow Road, Middlesbrough, and is listed for online auction with Aycliffe Homes for a guide price of £25,000.
