I would recommend you get Steve Henkel's book, The Sailor's Book of Small Cruising Sailboats, which covers 300 boats under 28' LOA.
It would also help if you said what you're trying to do with said sailboat. Are you looking for a daysailer or a small cruising boat with a cabin, head, and galley? There are a lot of boats in the $4000-6000 price range that would fit either category.
Do you want a trailerable boat? If so, what vehicle are you planning to tow with? What is the maximum towing capacity of the vehicle?
As a general rule, the more relevant and specific information you put in an OP, the better the quality of the responses you'll get. I'd also recommend that you read the POST in my signature to get the most out of sailnet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
