In the current climate where housing prices are soaring, and properties are selling faster than you put an offer down, it might feel impossible to find an affordable house. However not all homes have to cost a fortune, if you are looking for a chance to get on the housing ladder, or maybe find a new housing project to sink your teeth into read ahead.
There are definitely some houses on the cheaper end of the market across Derbyshire. Yes, some cheaper properties may need some love and care, but anyone prepared for the project of “doing-up” a house could pick themselves up a bargain.
One property which is due to go under the hammer at an online auction next week is a three-bedroom mid-terrace house in a village surrounded by countryside in north Derbyshire. The house on Chapel Road in Grassmoor, near Chesterfield, is in need of modernisation and carries a guide price of £29,000-£34,000.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Property Auctioneers Bond Wolfe, said: “Properties like this offer an ideal opportunity for those with some DIY skills looking for their first step on the property ladder, or investors looking to boost their rental portfolio.
“Some properties require more work than others, but all come with guide prices that are a fraction of market values and offer a huge return for those prepared to invest time and energy.”
