Lately, it seems that home prices are going up (good news for homeowners), but household incomes are staying the same. Potential first-time homebuyers may find it hard to get their debt-to-income ratio into a healthy balance, especially seeing as though many “young adults” are carrying hefty student loans.

In 2016, only 25% of homes in Midlothian have sold for $200,000 or less. Not to fear! There are affordable homes out there! They can just be a bit illusive.

Well, I’m here to help. Here are my top picks of homes currently for sale in Midlothian under $200k.

1. 13700 Buck Rub Dr

This home in Deer Run has been well-maintained and has some very nice updates. It’s a coveted one-level home and on a really large lot (1.3 acres) for Midlothian. Don’t miss out on the great outdoor living space!

2. 13331 Master Stag Dr

Large living room with vaulted ceilings, eat-in kitchen, big master bedroom with his/hers closets, a cool loft, and a massive back deck… What more could you ask for?

3. 14248 Key Deer Dr

Looks like the updating and renovating have been done for you – just move your stuff in and make it your own. This home has beautiful laminate floors throughout the open floor plan and nice carpet and tile in the other spaces. Check out the stainless steel appliances and that awesome back yard!

4. 2718 Brookforest Rd

This is a super cozy looking cape home with some really great outdoor space. In the last few years it’s gotten a new roof, new siding, and new HVAC system. Very few touches (if any) needed to make it your home.
