We're constantly trawling the internet to see what sort of hidden gems are on the market, and there are some absolute crackers out there. Here are five that might get you rethinking your options. 

Tassie: 38 Merivale Street, South Launceston

Fancy kicking back with a Pimms while enjoying 180-degree views from your deck for $349,000? Well, that's a legit option in Tassie, folks. We love this solid 1950s four-bedroom home. The kitchen's renovated, the polished floorboards are in pretty good nick and and it's on a massive block with a stack of fruit trees. We reckon it's an absolute steal.

Melbourne: 36 St Leonards Road, Healesville

This cottage needs some love, but for between $395,000 and $430,000 you get a charming period home on a big block of land in Healesville. It's close enough to the city to commute to work and you're a stone's throw from the wineries on the weekend. Plus, you get all this for the price of a shoebox in the city. A lick of paint and she's good and new... almost. 

 Healesville: better value than a shoebox in the city, mate

South Australia: 9 Second Street, Melton

Ok, look, it's an hour and a half from Adelaide, but it's also a stone shack with excellent bones, it's on a massive 1.6 hectares of land and it's just $89,000. So we had to chuck it on the list. We reckon you could have some excellent dinner parties by the fireplace. And at this price, you can put lobster on the menu.

Queensland: 10 Givens Street, Westcourt

The joke really is on Melburnians and Sydneysiders. For a cool $399,000 you can snap up this renovated three-bedroom beauty just moments from the crystal clear Cairns beaches. There's a covered back deck for those moody monsoonal days and manicured lawns to laze around on during dry season.  

 QLD: just need to whack a pool in

Melbourne: 7/15 Rae Street Fitzroy North

Here's one in the heart of Fitzroy North for the hipster punters that refuse to give up their latte lifestyle. It's renovated and close to Edinburgh Gardens, which is handy because you obviously don't get a backyard. This one-bedder is little, but it's really quite reasonable to pay between $380,000 and $418,000 to live in this ripper hood.
