It’s the time of year when shoppers are on the hunt for bargain prices. Every day between now and Christmas will present a different must-have deal that’s too good to pass up—or so retailers try to make you think.
While homes can’t be snapped up with 1-Click ordering, homes with budget-friendly prices should galvanize shoppers to take quick and decisive action.
Dreaming of holidays around the hearth in classic style, we scoured our listings for Victorian homes for sale across the country. There are about 8,000 on the market, give or take a gable. Our aim was to turn up affordability, so we capped our cross-country search at $200,000—well below the country’s median list price of $250,000.
We found seven stunners worthy of a bargain hunter’s gaze. If you’re into scoring a deal this year, scroll down to see homes that should be on your holiday shopping list.
Victorian vitals: Located in the Potwin Place Historic District, this beautiful four-bedroom home has a number of nostalgic features: leaded glass doors, stained-glass windows, and and gleaming hardwood floors. It’s been on the market since April, and we’re shocked that a buyer has not stepped forward.
Victorian vitals: Pure Americana in the Pacific Northwest, it even has a white picket fence! Built in 1909, the five-bedroom charmer has a separate entrance, which means it could generate income for a smart buyer.
Victorian vitals: Sitting on just over an acre of land, this three-bedroom cutie is nestled next to the Maryland state line. The two-story home offers spacious rooms, old-school charm, and a tire swing out back.
Victorian vitals: This Queen Anne Victorian comes with one of our all-time favorite features: a turret! A buyer should negotiate some of the decor into the final sale, because the period touches in this place are on point.
Victorian vitals: We’re in love with the gingerbread look of this Georgia peach. The yellow paint on the exterior, not quite as much. But with the low list price, you can afford a few gallons of exterior paint.
Victorian vitals: This slim three-bedroom home has over 1,000 square feet of space, which makes it the coziest spot on our list. While the inside is small, there’s a big patio out back that looks perfect for warm summer nights.
Victorian vitals: In the words of singer and songwriter John Mellencamp, little pink houses for you and me. We’re smitten with the shade of exterior paint on this gorgeous four-bedroom home. The listing mentions a mouthwatering room we’ve never heard of: a pie pantry! In which case, a slice of Key lime pie on the wraparound front porch would be heavenly.
