If you’re on the lookout for a new home and a bargain, then there’s plenty out there for you now.

House prices have continued to rise throughout the pandemic and have increased in almost all parts of the country.

Despite this, Zoopla has a host of south Essex homes listed for sale for less than £100,000 on its website.

So here’s a round-up of those properties and an idea of what you’re getting for your money:
