Calling all Notre Dame fans: This five-bedroom, two-bath historic home in South Bend is big enough to fit all your fellow fan friends — and a bargain in the town with the seventh-cheapest median home price. We're squeaking past the $100,000 mark, but this home also has the lowest square footage cost of any on our list. The three-story home is just blocks from the St. Joseph River and a 6-minute drive to the University of Notre Dame campus. It's close enough that you can walk to the stadium on game days.

And then there's the home itself: a 1907 gem that comes with gorgeous hardwood floors and trim throughout, plus a wood-burning fireplace, oak cabinets and a formal dining room. Even the third-floor finished bedroom has a full walk-in closet.
