Stop scouring zillions of listings websites. It’s exhausting.

Let us do the hard work for you!

We pick the most beautiful old homes for $100K or less and share them with you weekly.



Questions?

How many emails will I receive?

Our newsletters are sent out weekly and will go directly to your inbox.

Are you guys realtors?

Nope! Just two people obsessed with cheap old houses.

How do you find your listings?

We look at listings all day long, so we always have a good stockpile ready to share. This is partly because we’re just obsessed, and partly because our jobs require it. We run an old house real estate marketplace called CIRCA, which features new historical house listings everyday. Elizabeth also writes the real estate section for Country Living Magazine. And all day, every day, people are DMing and emailing us listings, because we’ve kind of become known as the cheap old house people. We’re cool with that.

What is your criteria for listings?

Elizabeth has a masters degree in Historic Preservation, so she knows a good old house when she sees it! All of the listings we show are very architecturally-intact and full of original charm and character. Hate is a strong word, but we strongly dislike houses that have been flipped and stripped of all character.

Can I see houses only in a certain state?

We don’t currently offer state-specific newsletters. However, if you visit our Instagram feed @cheapoldhouses, you can search listings by state using hashtags such as #cheapoldhousesny or #cheapoldhousesms

Elizabeth + Ethan

We’re dreamers. We love old things. And we believe that you’re being sold the wrong American dream. Contrary to what everyone else says, you don’t actually need to buy a million dollar house and go into extreme debt to live a satisfying and beautiful life. But don’t just take our word for it—we’ve brought together hundreds of thousands of people who feel the same way, and who are masters at celebrating the beauty of cheap old houses.

Most real estate listings talk about beds, baths and basements. SNORE. We talk about crown molding, mantels and turrets. SO MUCH BETTER. We’ve got an eye for good listings, and the know-how and connections to find them. And each week, we package them up in a neat little bow and send them directly to you.
