Some people are just old house people. Never content to live in a cookie cutter new build, creaky floors and dated wallpaper are selling points. If period details and the promise of a lot of elbow grease are for you, then this Instagram account is your new (old) favorite thing.
Cheap Old Houses is an Instagram account created by the team at Circa, a magazine, community, and listing platform for people who love historic homes. Circa's marketplace includes old houses for sale all across the United States, in various states of disrepair, and at a full range of price points. But Cheap Old Houses features just the ones listed for $100,000 or under.
Whether you're actively searching for an old house or just dreaming of the fixer upper life years down the road, the account is both practical and aspirational. All of these places are really for sale, and for reasonable prices at that (though that varies by how much work they all need). If you're one to send your partner real estate listings as a form of therapy, then this is great for that, too.
