According to, the median home value in New Hampshire is $277,200. If that number seems a little out of reach for your budget, you're not alone. More and more people are searching for a deal on a home that won't put them in debt for a good portion of their lives. What if it were possible to buy a house outright, and not have to worry about a monthly mortgage payment? It's quite possible to do so, as hard to believe as it may seem. Although chances are, if you do end up purchasing one of these extremely low cost houses, you'll likely need to shell out thousands on repairs and upgrades. But if you're handy, and can tackle some of the bigger projects on your own, you actually have a shot at coming out on top. To get you started on figuring out if this homebuying approach might work for you, here are five homes in New Hampshire currently on the market for only $25,000 or less:

3 Preble St. Northumberland

Pros: Lots of interior space (1,488 square feet),near community playground and swimming pool.

Cons: Shed needs replacing. Also, Northumberland...kind of in the middle of nowhere.

List price: $25,000


3 Cousins Dr. Pittsburg

Pros: Private location, access to hunting, fishing, hiking

Cons: This is actually more of a camp than a home. At 441 square feet, there's no bathroom (but there is an outhouse).

List price: $24,500


2856 Cedar Stream Road, Clarksville

Pros: Great trout fishing, moose and deer hunting.

Cons: Sounds like it's pretty hard to get to. No ATV access...and 4WD recommended in the spring. This one would also be considered a camp.

List price: $15,000


277 School St. Lisbon

Google Maps

Pros: There don't really seem to be any, actually.

Cons: No picture of the house available, needs a complete renovation, garage is no salvagable and needs to be removed.

List price: $15,000


105 Winter St. Claremont

Pros: City septic and water, close to everything!

Cons: Based on the pictures, it seems to be in pretty rough shape.

List price: $17,000
