Feel like your dream home is out of reach? You might be surprised.
Although the UK's average house now costs more than a quarter of a million pounds, there are still plenty of great homes around for less.
From a terraced house with the local pub as your neighbour, to some lovely brand new Shared Ownership homes and others ripe for renovation, let's take a look at nine homes on the market for less than £100k.
