In our recent report about the Denver zip codes with the highest and lowest home prices, Megan Aller, a sales representative for First American Title Insurance Corporation who's been working in the area for the past thirteen years or so, noted that while the average cost for a metro-area residence continues to hover around $500,000, prices under $300,000 are available in select areas.

True enough. As you'll see, a handful of standalone houses in Denver are currently available for less than $250,000. But all of them are fixer-uppers of an extreme sort, with some sellers hinting that the land they sit on is more valuable than the actual structures.

Such price points aren't unprecedented. We've monitored houses marketed below a quarter-million dollars for posts published in May and August of 2018 and June 2019. In some cases, the sellers portrayed the homes as habitable after needed repairs or updates. In others, they suggested scraping the abodes and starting over.

The presentations for the following five properties, all featured on the Homesnap website, follow suit. Most offer extremely brief sales pitches that emphasize that the houses are being sold as is — and the one for 4768 High Street, captured in the photo at the top of this item, boasts no description at all.

Three of the homes are in the Elyria-Swansea neighborhood; Gateway-Green Valley Ranch and East Colfax are also represented. Their prices are bargains compared to the going rate for Denver real estate, but the costs won't stop there.
