5 Abandoned Homes Under $20K Begging To Be Restored

Abandoned houses hold a certain enigmatic charm for many of us. Their worn-out exteriors, with weathered clapboards, broken shutters, and peeling paint, seem to invite us to peek inside. If only I had a magical wand to restore these abandoned places to their former glory. Today, I’d like to introduce you to five such abandoned houses, which, in this case, means they’ve been left vacant or taken over by the city. What’s intriguing is that they’re currently available on the market for less than $20,000.

122 Richardson Ave in Syracuse, NY 13205, priced at $14,000

Now, take a look at this one in the Brighton neighborhood. It might not be “pretty in pink,” but with the right touch, it could transform into something special.

554 Nelson St, Macon, GA 31206

This house is practically pleading for a restoration, reminiscent of that classic Sammy Davis Junior song that goes, “The handyman can, ’cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

This impressive brick home proudly gazes upon the picturesque Pingree Park just across the street, while also eagerly anticipating a new owner who will restore it to its former splendor.

317 Garden St, Macon, GA 31217              $19,900

This house was crafted by HM Cutter, a skilled builder and cabinet maker. It stayed within his family for a century, and now, it’s longing for a new forever family to come along, breathe life back into it, and cherish it for the next century to come.

3347 N 26th St, Milwaukee, WI 53206    $5,000

This charming home, dating back to around 1910, is extending an open-hearted and open-handed invitation. It’s eagerly welcoming all offers, and there’s an exciting possibility that it might even qualify for the Milwaukee home buyer assistance grant program.
