New house was sold at price ten thousand dollars cheaper.

Your sentences have more problems than the word order.

However, concentrating on the good location for "price": in that sentence, the word "price" need not be used. It is not OK to use "price" and "cheaper" together.

Why? Because:

  • products are cheap(er)
  • prices are low(er)

and not:

  • products are low(er)
  • prices are cheap(er)

Two ways to write that sentence are:

  • The new house was sold ten thousand dollars cheaper.

  • The new house was sold at a price ten thousand dollars lower.

Of course, one should also tell that it was cheaper / lower compared to what? Previous price for the same house? Another house? Which another house? But that is outside the scope of this question.
