12 Liberty Street WH Newburgh NY

Sorry, this house has SOLD. 

This foreclosed house is rough. The holes in the wall appear to be from someone robbing all of the copper piping. It needs all new windows, kitchens, and bathrooms. Yes, the price is low. However, you will have a very hard time finding a bank willing to finance a home like this, which means you will need cash. Financing and the condition aside, the location is spot-on when the Liberty Street School development has finished. And if you are feeling neighborly, become part of the Newburgh Heights Association.
