That's a decent budget for a nice 2005. It seems that everyone wants a great Elise for $25,000 or less these days...
Not willing to ship however will greatly restrict your choices unless you are open to driving a long way home - which has its own costs and expenses. I've been involved in shipping both an Elise and an Exige from California to Wisconsin and it was a bargain any way I looked at it. Just something to consider if you want to find the car as you might expect for that money. Good luck!
