|Price Ranges||Typical Properties|
$10,000 to $100,000
Condos - Georgetown is the only town in which you can find a condo for less than $100,000. A 2 bedroom/1bath with 850 square feet will start at $80,000.
Homes - Since our towns were originally mining towns, we will occasionally see a small home ($300-700 square feet) usually built in the late 1890s, come up for sale and be priced between $90,000 to $100,000. However, most of the time they need a lot of work.
