2 bed 1 bath is ok. No condos.

Is this doable? Mostly just curious if this is still possible.

I did a lot of searching the last month. I think that it is possible.

Do you care about school district? If not, then you can definitely find a place in a not so desirable school district in that range. If you have kids or will have kids, then you may need to do some research. Get a good realtor (I can recommend one), and just look for that awesome deal.

I just did a search on zillow.com for Columbus, Oh. Criteria were 2 bedroom, 1 bath, and udner $100,000. I got 4,785 results.

So yeah, I think you can do it. You will want to define what is important to you and then start to find a house in an area that meets your needs (school system proximity to work, etc)

I think it can be done, but I don't know if it will be "ok"

That's what I thought too. ok is up for interpretation, right?

My wife and I recently purchased a 1900 sqft 4 bds 3 bath home in Gahanna for $102k. Home needed some work but that is what we wanted and I'm in a pretty good school district and a safe neighborhood. There are lots of homes out there but like some of the poster's mentioned, it depends on what you are looking for!

If you're looking for a place to invest that will gradually appreciate in value, look into Weinland Park, Franklinton or Olde Towne East. The downside to these neighborhoods is that they are in varying degrees of decline, most of the houses will require some amount of work, and they're not the safest neighborhoods in the city. The upside is that they're all on the upswing and are in the process of revitalization/gentrification. Crime is getting better, homes are getting fixed up, new businesses are opening, etc. So if you're willing to wait it out, these are good places to buy into right now.
