91 Carson Avenue Newburgh NY

This house appears to have been vacant for quite some time now. It has suffered a lot of damage due to the neglect- missing pipes, leaks, collapsed ceilings and collapsed walls. This is a gut rehab, and this is most likely an all-cash renovation. In this condition, you will not get a loan from a bank to renovate this property. Often times it is investors or extremely handy owners that can handle a house in this condition. A few doors down the “Carson Casino” was busted, which will hopefully make this area safer. Also on this block, a full blown renovation is happening at 44 Carson, a little inspiration for the potential of these homes.
