Published: Friday, July 19, 2013 11:33 a.m. CDT

Goldilocks isn’t the only person who knows when it feels “just right.” Home buyers across the U.S. are drawn to 3-bedrooms, and it’s easy to see why: A 1-bedroom is too small to accommodate guests, while 2 bedrooms may not leave space for that home office or baby on the way. If price is the only factor holding you back from a 3-bedroom home, we’ve gathered a few on the market for $100,000 or less.
