Are you searching for a new home? I did a search, and right here, right now, this is the most affordable home on the market in Grand Junction.

From time to time we post about unique and pricey real estate in Western Colorado. Those homes are interesting, to say the least. Personally, the older I get, the simpler I get. My tastes no longer involve hot tubs and home movie theaters. I'm more interested in housing I can afford, doesn't take 30 hours to clean, and doesn't feature tons of amenities that have to be repaired.

According to Realtor.com, this home enters the market at $54,900.00. It's a 1,216 square foot home, making the cost on the unit $45 per square foot. You'll find it off of 25 Road in Grand Junction.

  • What do you get for $54,900.00? The specs include:
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bath
  • 1,216 square feet
  • new carpet in bedrooms and family room
  • updated kitchen
  • luxury vinyl tile hardwoods in the kitchen

The square footage alone makes this home appealing to me. I spent the last 19 years living in a house coming in at 970 square feet. I loved it. I recently moved to a drastically bigger home, and I'm not sure it was an improvement. Not only that, but I paid $100K for the 970 square foot house back in 2001. With that in mind, $54K is a steal.

If you're looking for a home in Grand Junction, you might want to inquire about this one. I don't work for the realty company, don't have an interest in the sale, and will not benefit if the house goes under contract. Personally, I've been house poor for my entire adult life, and like to encourage people not to follow my path.

This is the least expensive home currently on the market in this town. Why not take a look? Here's a little tour.
