If a low budget has been keeping you off the property ladder, then our round up of the cheapest houses in Australia will get you inspired. With housing prices on the up and up, more of us are torn between taking advantage of the lowered interest rates and carrying on renting. 

And while renting has its perks—nomadic capabilities, change when you crave it, and some classy amenities, there’s nothing quite like owning your own space. So don’t be discouraged when you see the multimillion dollar homes on those glossy reality shows. We’re offering you ten ways to set some roots down right now.

In fact, most of these houses can be bought for less than $100,000, making them cheaper than a Blue Crocodile Hermes Birkin Handbag… or 100,000 avocados. 

And while some of these houses may seem a little neglected, what we see is potential. With a little imagination, you can turn one of these fixer uppers into your dream home. So here are the cheapest houses in Australia you can buy right now.
