In real estate, the phrase "you get what you pay for" is often very true. However, it doesn't always have to be, especially when it comes to having enough space. There are plenty of Newfoundland houses for sale that offer decent square footage for a more-than-fair price.
While residents of the Rock sometimes have to deal with some pretty intense winters, there's no denying that a home on the island would be pretty idyllic.
You could end up living by the water and watching the ships go by, or you could live more inland, in the quiet countryside.
Either way, there are houses that are on the market for less than $80,000, and you don't have to deal with any cramped spaces just to save some money.
Some of these homes are fixer-uppers, but with so much room and such a small initial price to pay, renovations wouldn't necessarily be out of the question.
These houses have some other attractive features as well, such as nice yards, large decks, or the previously mentioned waterfront views.
An entire house for just five digits doesn't have to be a fantasy, and you don't have to pay a premium to live the Maritime lifestyle.
