Homes for Sale Below $10K?! ‘Bargain Block’ Shows Us Where—and Gives Us Hope

With interest rates and home prices through the roof of late, shows like “Bargain Block” can be just what cash-strapped homebuyers need to realize that there’s still hope.

Case in point: In the latest Season 4 episode, “The Windsor Balmoral House,” Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas have bought a 1,500-square-foot, four-bedroom, two-bath house in Detroit for only $7,300. It’s decrepit and hasn’t been lived in for years, but it has a lot of potential and English cottage charm. Bynum and Thomas say they can renovate it for between $80,000 and $100,000, and their real estate agent, Shea Hicks-Whitfield, thinks she can list it at $160,000, which would mean a decent profit.

In the end, they do a miraculous job of making this shabby Detroit shack feel like a royal Windsor dwelling, all without spending a king’s ransom on it. Here’s how they pull it off, with plenty of tips you might be inspired to try around your own abode.
