    10k we got it from family. It's valued (as is) at over 90k, we are rehabbing it.

    We are turning it into a 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom, three storey with finished basement Victorian House with a half of acre of land.  It was built for the Worlds Fair here in St. Louis.  


    I LOVE this house... Seriously... I can't wait to finish getting it updated and move in.  Right now we have to gut it since the previous owner renovated it into 6 one bedroom/one bathroom apartments.  So there are 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 6 kitchens, 6 living rooms... Its a pain in the ass LOL, and the basement is set up is like a laundromat/storage.

    BUT... We're excited to own it, it's beautiful and I can't wait to finish it :)

     Mine was $42K. 1600 sq. ft., 3 bed, 2 bath, full basement, detached garage, half an acre.

    This always shocks people...so I'll just save you the "wtf" and tell you that where I live, the cost of living is VERY low. The average price for a nice house (we're not talking slums here, we're talking small-town rural Kansas) is $65K. The average rent on a nice 3 bedroom house is about $400 a month.

     My mom bought a house like that in SD that was renovated into seperate appartments it was a LOT of work but worth the low asking price she paid.
