Ten properties you really can afford
  • This two-bedroom red-brick terrace looks in good nick, with an attractive Shaker-style kitchen - although the bathroom is a little bit scruffy. Close to local shops, schools and bus routes, it has a separate lounge and dining room, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Outside there's a rear yard. It's available for £27,500 from agent Reeds Rains.

  • You get a lot for your money in South Glamorgan: a house with a large through lounge, kitchen and two other rooms, currently used for utility and storage space. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom - unfortunately, downstairs. Outside there's a garden with stunning views, and there's even a double garage. It's on the market for £34,950 with agent Property Solutions Wales.

  • This one-bedroom flat is in a purpose-built block with communal gardens and parking in Preston's Ingol suburb, a couple of miles from Preston station. It has a 15-foot-square reception room, with a small but attractive separate kitchen, and the bedroom's a reasonable size. There's double glazing and electric heating. Agent Farrell Heyworth is offering it for £20,000.

  • This second-floor flat is tiny - but then it's also very cheap for the south-east. It consists of one studio room with kitchen area measuring just 13'5" by 11'5" feet, plus a separate bathroom. There's laminate flooring and built-in wardrobes and kitchen cupboards, as well as a balcony for when the walls start to feel as if they're closing in. It costs just £47,950 through agents Shiebert & Co.

  • Stoke-on-Trent's one of the cheapest places in the country, as this one-bedroom, ground floor flat shows. Near the city centre, it has a good-sized, 13'5" x 11'5" lounge and separate kitchen. The bedroom's a decent size too. There's electric heating, double glazing and a security intercom; you can find out more about the £34,950 property from agent Dale & Collins.

  • This two-bedroom flat, in a well-maintained block, is attractive and in excellent condition. There's a smart bathroom and a very nice kitchen. The flat has gas central heating and double glazing. Pattinson Estate Agents are looking for offers over £24,950.

  • The price of this mid-terrace house has just been cut by a massive 20% - which equates to a less-than-massive £10,000. With three bedrooms and a cosy sitting room, it's decorated in a dramatic but appealing style, with an attractive fireplace in the sitting room. As you've probably worked out, it's now up for sale at £40,000, from the Express Estate Agency.

  • This two-bedroom flat is staggeringly cheap, and only needs a little refurbishment - new flooring, mainly. There's a huge reception room - over twenty feet long - which opens into a good-sized kitchen area. There's plenty of parking behind the block. The flat costs £22,000 from agent Crofts.

  • Small but perfectly formed, this one-bedroom house in Accrington needs some work inside: the kitchen has only a sink unit, though there's a gas point for a cooker and it's plumbed for a washing machine. There's a shared yard behind. It costs £19,950 through agent Mortimers.

  • You can barely buy a small car for the price of this studio flat in Cumbernauld. Entered via a courtyard, it has a large entrance vestibule and a hallway with storage. There's a good-sized studio room with with a recess to house the bed, and a serviceable fitted kitchen and bathroom. Agents Village Estates are looking for offers over £9,500.
