Are you looking to buy something to inhabit yourself or to rent out? Chances are getting something that is in move in condition in the price range you describe will be quite difficult if not impossible. Buying something to put a few dollars into to fix up and rent out, then you might have a better shot. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Are you looking to put down $2000 to $5000 or purchase a property for that amount?
If you are looking for a property in that price range it actually is possible but would require a ton of work.
Best of luck
