As the home to one of the state’s largest universities, there are plenty of rental options throughout Mt. Pleasant and its surrounding communities. But whether you just moved to town, are flat out tired of handing your money to a landlord when you could be working toward owning a house of your own, Mt. Pleasant has its fair share of housing stock on the market. Much of it at prices attractive to the entry level home buyer.
Let’s take a look around town at some handsome houses, and all priced below the $100,000 mark.
621 S. Oak Street: $92,900
Though just blocks from Mill Pond Park, this sharp midnight-blue home might keep you indoors, what with that stone fireplace setting the tone in the living room. Refinished hardwood floors and an updated kitchen give this house a fresh and contemporary feel while still retaining its 1920s-era charm.
203 W. Maple Street: $89,900
This multi-family house is a licensed duplex. Rent out either both or one of the units and keep one for yourself. Built in 1920, the home is split into two flats, with three bedrooms, two baths, and access to the basement on the main floor, and two bedrooms and one bath on the second. Walk downtown in minutes or even quicker to Potter Park, which is located just next door.
309 E. Locust Street: $89,900
Sharply remodeled, this 1912-built home features a cottage-like cedar shake siding exterior and beautiful hardwood throughout. The charm continues to the bathroom, with its claw-foot tub. On the practical side, 309 E. Locust includes a newer heating system, water heater, and roof. Walking distance to downtown and campus.
