You can find some decent homes in blue collar neighborhoods for around that price. Here's a few I found.

4011 Mary Street, Omaha, NE 68112 | Listing Information

6118 Park Lane Drive, Omaha, NE 68152 | Listing Information

3901 Himebaugh Avenue, Omaha, NE 68111 | Listing Information

3481 Pratt Street, Omaha, NE 68111 | Listing Information

4522 Hamilton Street, Omaha, NE 68114 | Listing Information

Run through the CBSHomes and NPDodge sites and see what you like.

I really like the area between 42nd street, Saddle Creek Rd, Leavenworth and Center. They seem to be nicer, lower budget looking homes, but in a very nice area. That's just based upon what I can see though, so they may not be cheap, but they're seemingly affordable.

You might try bellevue/papillion/la vista too, sometimes the housing can be a little cheaper outside of the city.

The housing may be cheaper but most surrounding cities have much higher property taxes (bellevue, papilion, lavista all come to mind here). Some by quite a bit too. Honestly Omaha has a LOT of nice homes under 60k. You will be on the eastern side though, most likely no farther west than about 40th st. I know the home south of me (far south east corner) sold for 45k and it was a real nice home, small, but nice.

But not all. Papillion (in the city limits) has a relatively reasonable property tax rate - they say the city portion is actually the lowest in the metro area. You really need to be careful with which school district you are in (there are multiple in Omaha itself) - that's the biggest driver.

Also be very careful if you are outside of the city limits in any of the cities in Douglas and Sarpy county - inside of a subdivision or SID - their tax rates are all over the board and generally a lot higher.

I would definitly look inside the Papillion city limits, especially the original part of town.

It is possible to find one in that price range in decent neighborhoods but bare in mind you might have to make some sacrifices like longer drives, no garage or smaller home in general.

Look at Council Bluffs Its a close 5 min drive from Omaha, not a lot of crime as compared to some of the 60K areas of Omaha.
