There are single family homes and certainly condos in -53 that are in your price range. Speaking for myself, I am just as happy to help a client with a $100,000 dream as the one witha $1M dream! You may want to talk to your lender though because some lenders will only handle a minimum loan. I know there are lenders who do though so a few phone calls and you are in. It's always a good idea to get pre-approved anyway. Happy Hunting!
More than 30 properties are currently listed in that zip code for under 110,000. That coupled with record low rates for FHA loans...it has never been a better time to purchase a home. Send me your email and I'd be happy to send you the current listings to review.
Please let me know if I can help in any way~
You've been inupdated with advice from Realtors in the Austin area but the one thing I see missing from all the answers is that choosing the Realtor who fits you best is so important. You are putting your trust in that person who must work with you honestly and ethically.
If you don't feel you "click" with an agent, please do both yourself and the agent a favor and politely terminate the relationship and find an agent that you feel more at ease with....this relationship with your Realtor will be very intense for a short period of time (until you find the house and close on it) and then like any good relative, will remain in your life until no longer needed.....so after you close the Realtor services still should be available to you.
With all of that said, please check out the websites and testamonials of all the Realtors before you make your choice. We all can do the same search to find you a home so it's the extras that a Realtor brings to the buyer/realtor relationship.
I'd love to be included in your top three Realtors as you make your choice. Check out our company at http://www.homeandhearthrealty.com or call us at (512) 467-6191. And good luck on your home buying journey.
I just did this same thing in 2008, a joint tenant relationship and we each own the property 50/50. We got it for $79k! I think we'd work well together, feel free to email me or check out my website. I can send you a list of homes and we can go out and look at yiur favorites in person as soon as you're ready!
All the best,

You can search for homes on my website - see the link below. From the first page of the website just click on Search for Homes and you can search by map as well as by price. Feel free to call me and we can discuss getting prequalified and then we can get started!
