LOOK: 7 Pics From The Least Expensive House In Larimer County
$115K isn't what it used to be. There was a time when you could get a nice piece of property for that price with a nice home and live the good life. Those days are long gone and will never return.
For this particular deal, I'm excluding condos, townhomes, manufactured homes, attached dwellings. I'm simply looking at detached single-family homes.
Right now, the average price of a single-family home in the Fort Collins area is right around $512K but I'm here to tell you that if you go outside the city limits a bit and do enough digging - and are willing to downsize, a lot - you can still find something under $150K.
According to Property Shark, this home in Red Feather Lakes is a steal on the market going for $115K. Oh yeah, there's a catch.
It's only 360 square feet.
This property, which is basically a cabin in the woods, looks like a pretty cozy spot surrounded by insanely beautiful country.
Built in 1937, this is one of the oldest original cabins in Red Feather and has been in the same family since 1941.
Sure, it's mostly been used as a getaway cabin but if you are simply done with the rat race and looking for a change and a good old-fashioned simple way of life, we just might have found your spot.
Let's take a tour together.
