House Hunt: Retiring or Looking For 1st Home? Great Ranch Homes Under $200K

Each week House Hunt features the latest homes for sale in West Cobb, Paulding and Douglas counties.

Ranch-style homes are the most sought out homes on the real estate market today for a variety of reasons. First time buyers and new families appreciate the quality and cost per square foot of the older, well made ranch homes. Retiring Baby Boomers seek the convenience (and safety) of one level living as they age and become less mobile. And, of course, investors prefer ranches for the all of the reasons above.

This week’s featured ranch homes are loaded with custom upgrades and renovations. They range in price from $100,000 for a three-bedroom, 4+ acre property on Mount Vernon Road in Lithia Springs to $199,900 for a gorgeous four-bedroom estate home on Tyree Road in Douglasville.
