Six houses on sale for just £150,000 from Cornwall to Liverpool

WHERE exactly in the country you decide to buy a home could have a major impact on how much house you can get for your money.

The old phrase "location, location, location" really does ring true for house hunters.

And if you're saving to take a first foot on the property ladder, it can be difficult to know where to start.

There are plenty of things to consider when buying a home, from how much of a deposit you need to save, to how many bedrooms you want and which way the garden faces.

Each week we speak to first-time buyers in our My First Home series about how they've managed to get on the ladder.

One newbie told The Sun how a mistake with his ISA nearly cost him £2,000 – as well as his first home.

Another buyer revealed that she had to quit the job she loved to save the deposit for her £80,000 first home.

And rising house prices aren't make it any easier. According to the Office for National Statistics, the average UK house price is now an eye-watering £277,000.

But that doesn't mean you can't buy a home for less.

We've scoured the country with the help of Zoopla and found six houses that are selling for much less – in fact, they're all priced at £150,000.

TAXING TIMES

You could be owed £38,000 in council tax refunds – are you due back cash?

Here's what we found:



Worksop

In Worksop, you can get a semi-detached house with three bedrooms for this budget.

The property is close to local shops and schools, and less than a mile to the nearest train station.

Downstairs, there's a living room and kitchen diner as well as a room that could either be used as an office or a fourth bedroom.

Upstairs are three bedrooms and a bathroom suit.

And as well as a generous driveway at the front of the house, there's also a large garden to the rear.

Described as ideal for first-time buyers, the property needs some decorating but it comes with no upward chain for those wanting a quick purchase.


Newcastle-Upon-Tyne

Further north, buyers can nab a three-bedroom semi-detached house for £150,000.

Set back from the road, with privacy from a well-tended hedge, this house has the added bonus of being newly decorated throughout.

Downstairs, there's a generous living and dining room, with a separate kitchen and dedicated utility.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a bathroom with a separate toilet.

The garden is a sunseekers' dream, with a decking area as well as a separate space for garden furniture.



Cambourne, Cornwall

If it's kerb appeal you're after, look no further than this new-build house in Cornwall.

The end-of-terrace property has just one bedroom however, so it's probably not suitable for families.

Downstairs, there's a living room and an immaculate kitchen.

While upstairs is the bedroom and a newly fitted bathroom.

It's certainly compact, but it's within easy reach of Cornwall's north coast and stunning beaches.


Radley, Leeds

This one-bedroom terraced house near Leeds has bags of character.

The stone cottage has a large bedroom and bathroom, and a cellar for extra storage.

Downstairs, in the open plan kitchen and living room, you can even see the original stone the property is built from.

Outside is a cute courtyard garden, and the estate agent says there's plenty of scope for developments for those budding DIY pros.


Liverpool

This semi-detached house boasts three bedrooms, and a very modern feel.

The corner position gives the house an unusual look and layout.

Downstairs there's a kitchen diner, lounge and toilet

Upstairs are three-bedrooms, one with an en-suite, and a family bathroom too.

There's a driveway out front and small garden to the rear.

One thing buyers should watch out for though, is that this is a leasehold property, which means they may be extra costs to consider such as ground rent.



Nottingham

In Nottingham, you can get a two-bedroom terraced house for our £150,000 budget, and it's only half a mile from the central train station.

Downstairs, the house has a separate lounge and dining room, as well as a kitchen towards the back of the property, all of which are freshly decorated.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Out the back is a small courtyard garden, which might be in need of a bit of TLC.

The property, which is described as ideal for first-time buyers, also has a cellar for some extra storage.
