This Jamaica Estates three-bedroom, 1.5-bath is listed at $980,000.

If you're looking for more space and a bit of a suburban feel without having to decamp to New Jersey or Westchester, the far-from-the-subway portions of Queens are an option worth checking out, as you can still find a house in the borough for under $1 million. Below are five places that fit the bill and are holding open houses this weekend.

Asking price: $980,000. Open house: Sunday, September 10th, 2-4 p.m.
