Smashed Avocado: the fuel a generation needs to get into the property market.

Five under $500,000 - Feb 28, 2018

Five under $500,000 - Feb 28, 2018

On this week's search we've found some absolute crackers. In New South Wales the best you can hope for is a shed with an outhouse, but if you're prepared to move to Adelaide you can get a renovated beauty right on the beach. What'll it be, folks?

NSW: 421 Golden Highway, Denman 

We're going to ask you to use your imagination here. You can get a shed on a 75-acre block about an hour and a half out of Newcastle for $199,000. But it's not any old shed. It has a wood fire and solar panels that'll provide enough power to keep your iPhone charged. There's even an outhouse for precious millennials that refuse to dig a hole.  Up the hill you'll find an extra cabin with a 'bucket shower' (we're assuming it's actually just a bucket). 

 NSW: Could throw a killer bush bash right here

Tasmania: 251 Penquite Road Norwood 

You can get a freaking gem like this for $275,000 in Tassie, people. This sweet two-bed house has a renovated bathroom, a bloody nice backyard and mountain views. Come for the price, stay for the potential outdoor entertaining.

Melbourne: 16/4A Colonsay Road, Springvale 

Before you turn your nose up at suburbs outside the hipster belt, this spot has quite a bit to offer for a very tidy $285,000 - $313,000 price tag. Yeah, it's only a one-beddy but it's just 12-kilometres from the respite that is Chadstone and it's an easy drive to glorious Mentone beach, so look twice, friends. 

 Melb: Cheap(ish) and close to Chaddie

Queensland: 92 Cawarral Road, Tungamull

We're throwing in this place outside of Rockhampton. It makes the cut (just) at offers over $499,000. But for this price you get ten stunnings acres and a renovated three-bedroom, two-bathroom house. So if you've got a job you can do remotely and fancy a move up north, take a squiz. 

 Qld: When you've got ten acres, there's no fighting over where to park the Kingswood

Adelaide: 5/54 Yacca Road, Seacliff

This place is cute as a button, it's just a few streets back from the beach and it's an easy commute to the city. Keen? It's yours for between $299,000 and $328,000. Why anyone's still considering Bondi is beyond us. You get all of this for a quarter of the price and none of the wank. 

 Adelaide: beach babe
