You’d be forgiven for thinking it's impossible to find a property for £10,000 or less in 2023.
But there are still plenty of homes listed on Zoopla for around the £10,000 mark.
If you’re looking for your first home, a renovation project or an investment property, we’ve scoured the market to find 9 of the best homes listed for £10,000 or less.
Before we dive in, keep in mind that some of these properties are leasehold, so you own the property but not the land. Others are for sale by auction, so their final sale price might be higher than the guide price.
Let’s take a closer look at these affordable homes for sale.
