5 Homes Under Half a Million Dollars

While the true value of a home is not made up of dollars and cents, these 5 affordable homes are all available for under $500,000.

The value of a home is measured in moments.  It’s measured in bedtime stories, in backyard games of catch and in homemade cookies. And though having a place to call home is priceless, because a home is often the largest financial investment one makes in a lifetime, price does come into play. While the true value of a home is not made up of dollars and cents, these 5 affordable homes are all available for under $500,000.

From $17,000 in professional Thermador appliances in the gourmet kitchen to exposed reclaimed 100-year-old beams and mantle, words fall short in describing how historical meets technological in this French Country gem.

This cheery abode looks like a million bucks with it’s dazzling paint job.  But, that’s not the only thing that makes this home in Winds Harbor shine.  With modern fixtures and appliances, coffered ceilings, and even custom built-ins, this home is brimming with southern charm.

This country hideaway is a little slice of heaven on earth. This light-filled home has a lot to love.  A balcony overlooks the pond, which is surrounded by a stone walkway and seating. The screen porch looks out onto a nicely landscaped yard surrounded by woods. The wide front porch offers a great spot for relaxing with coffee and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. Watch the lightning bugs, stargaze on summer nights and create your escape from the world in a place that’s meant to be called home.

No, you’re not dreaming! This is waterfront property for under $500K. Located on the shore of Dugualla Bay, this no-bank waterfront haven is an easy no-ferry drive to Seattle. Launch from your own boat ramp to drop crab pots, or kayak or paddle-board along the beach.

Doesn’t this Tudor look like it was plucked from a fairy tale?  We love the lush front lawn, spacious bedrooms and built-in shelving. You can just imagine the evenings that could be spent with the family in front of the beautiful stone hearth. When do we move in?
