3 homes under $200,000, $300,000, and $400,000

If you’ve been looking to buy a home over the past few months around Denver, you probably know how unreasonable, unreasonable, and rude real estate prices have become.

And that’s as things get better. The listings have been on the market for an average of 11 days as of last month; Average home price Drops to $581,000 (down from an all-time high of $600,000 in June).

How fun for those of us looking to own a home with a patio anytime soon!

My day job is to write about food, but at night, I turn to real estate websites for some unicorns – I probably still need work, sure. And at the end of the summer housing craze, I found three houses on the market, in the mountains, that looked too cool to believe.

Woodland Park cabin for $175,000

Love the feel of gingerbread in this 516-square-foot cabin outside Colorado Springs. The house is halfway through a remodel, which is better than the cheap flip of my money, and still leaves room for proper finishes and fixtures throughout. And the price is right for that (for someone willing to work). Fresh wood paneling on the walls will make a beautiful painting, and the loft bedroom has its own balcony. I am looking to convert one outbuilding into a sauna, with attached wooden storage shed. 83 Jintian Road, Woodland Park, recolorado.com

This National Historic home was built in the 1890s and completely renovated in 2015.

Historic in Central City for $288,000

Plenty of options in this one, starting at $288,000 for an 1890 528-square-foot home (fully renovated as of 2015). Next, there are four surrounding lots that can be purchased for up to $600,000 USD, with options to build. The closest plot has a cabin (even older) that I’d like to keep – the Arts and Crafts room, anyone? The bathroom needs a little love to my taste. But it’s hard to beat the great outdoor space and location overlooking the mining district anywhere. 305 Bates St., Central City, evergreencommercialgroup.com
