I don't know where you live, but you cannot buy a house around here for $100,000 even in the dumpiest of neighborhoods. There are many many areas in this country where you have to spend at least half a million, but more general million dollars and more to buy an average sized house.

$100,000 is not much money at all for renovations/redecorating.
