I don't know what is available in your area, but I would encourage looking at 
retrofitting. Retrofitting commercial buildings is one option. Another is to 
buy a multi unit property. Santa Cruz County has a very expensive housing, and 
out group looked for years for property we could afford to develop.  We ended 
up buying a commercial property with 12 units for well below market rate. In 
the 5 years since we've moved in, I have seen several similar properties come 
up for sale. You don't get the shiny new home with the neat features, but you 
do get to live in community.
