Farmhouses are very popular among second second home buyers, and the best examples (like the wrap porch Victorian out of the movie 'Love, Valour, Compassion) can carry hefty price tags. Pickings can be pretty slim for more modest charmers in the moderate, under $300K range, especially in quieter settings away from main roads.
Sometimes there are only a couple of houses on the market to show. So it's pretty exciting to actually have a selection. There are 5 sub-$300K farmhouses on the market worth a look right now. Some are more 'classic' than others, but all are in pretty nice settings. There are some other nice charmers on the market in this range as well, but they're either closer to main roads or need more work than many buyers want to do, so I didn't include them here.
