Too good to be true? Not so. From a dovecote to a chapel, these properties are all listed for sale for £10k or less.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that it is virtually impossible to buy a property for under £10,000 in 2018. But we have hunted far and wide to find seven properties that fit the smaller-than-usual bill on Zoopla.
1. Freehold of house and land in Milford, Derbyshire, for £5,000
Calling investors! This building is divided into two flats, which together produce £600 of service charge and ground rent for the freeholder each year. Do the maths and it works out a 6% annual return - a little better than your average high street savings account. It’s located in a picturesque village noted for its village inns and reputable primary school – not to mention a Britain in Bloom award.

2. Barn in Staveley, Derbyshire, for £5,000
If you want to roll up your sleeves, then look no further than this doer-upper that's going under the hammer. Dating back to the 11th century, the two-storey building already has water and sewerage services in place, and it’s time for a new owner to add their creative flair. But don't forget you may need planning permission for further development.
Available via Auction House
3. One-bedroom flat in Glasgow for £7,000
Located in a traditional sandstone building, this flat has all the hallmarks of a buy-to-let or first-time buyer purchase. The selling agent reckons it produces £300-plus rent per month. The block is located in the Clune Park area, which is set to undergo a major regeneration. But keep your eyes peeled: a number of properties are earmarked for demolition.

4. Beach hut in Felixstowe, Suffolk, for £8,000
This quaint beach hut has an end-of-row spot at Brackenbury Fort. It's beautifully decorated inside and is the perfect spot for seeking shelter from the sun - or sudden storms! And, handily, the hut is close to the car park and other amenities. It’s time to kick back and relax.

5. Chapel in Cwmsymlog, Aberystwyth, for £8,000
Check out this charming chapel! The Grade II-listed building’s large windows allow light to flood the interior. And it’s slightly elevated position in a quiet, rural Welsh village offers a bucolic vista. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the property is up for auction and has future ‘hiker’s haven’ written all over it.

6. Two-bedroom house in Doncaster for £9,950
Sure, this terraced house in Doncaster’s Shadyside area looks like it needs a bit of TLC and it's being sold with delayed completion, but it is petite and perfectly-formed. It has a fully-fitted kitchen, lean-to conservatory and double glazing throughout. What are you waiting for?

7. Dovecote in Tixover Grange, Stamford, price on application
Who doesn't love a dovecote? Dating back to the 17th century, this stone-built dovecote (a structure to house pigeons or doves) sits within a retirement community in Rutland. It’s currently used as storage but we’re sure that with a little out-of-the-box thinking, it could be transformed.
