There will always be someone out there willing to be the “cheapest” price in town. Maybe they produce quality work; then again, probably not.
Remember, bad website design ultimately costs more than good website design, regardless of the price tag.

I RESCUE COMPANIES FROM CHEAP WEBSITES! (grin)
Usually, cheap designers are new to the business and looking to establish a client base, students in school, or worse, moonlighting. (What about long term support when some new job comes along?)
A lot of them are located outside the USA, which for USA-based clients, can be a huge hassle for support, communication, and maintenance.
Many use templates, which are pre-designed websites available for purchase. Some templates look great, others are garbage. A common problem you run into with a template is that other people can buy and use it, and your website will share its look with many, many others.
