11 Dirt Cheap Places to Buy a Vacation Home


7) Bulgaria

Bulgaria is stunning, from the ancient architecture to the surrounding hills and countryside. The people are nice and beautiful, and Bulgaria is a popular destination for travelers. This is all great, but what many people don’t realize is that Bulgaria is also one of the least expensive places in the world to live. For $1,000 a month you can live comfortably. For $1,500 per month you would be considered upper-class and live very comfortably. At $1,500 a month you are looking at well more than twice the average income, which means you can easily find people willing to care for your home while you are away, and for an affordable cost. If you are looking to purchase a vacation home you can find them for $20,000 or less with an online search. Bulgaria is unique to some of the other locales on this list in that you need to consider it is a four-season country. It is cold in winter, hot in summer, with comfortable spring and fall. If you’ve ever lived in the Upper Midwest of the U.S. you will know exactly what this means. So, if you wish to rent your home out to tourists, your rentals will likely be seasonal. However, with the low cost of purchasing a home, you may not want to rent it out at all.
