Situated on a cul-de-sac in a gated community, this cute one-story home located in a Phoenix suburb is one of the least expensive on our list. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It has an open floor plan with the kitchen looking out into the spacious living room. The master suite is split off from the other two bedrooms, offering a little more privacy. The current owner plans to add new granite counter tops and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen prior to the sale. The home's flooring also will be updated. Landscaping is low-maintenance desert xeriscaping with the exception of a small backyard lawn. You'll get a one-year home warranty with a full price offer. The community features parks and lakes, but homeowners association fees are a pricey $417 per month.
