43 N City Terrace Newburgh NY

This is a really attractive home at the north end of Newburgh on City Terrace, a street with many gorgeous homes. Everything that can be seen from the photos shows a house that is move in ready. The high ceilings and wooden beams are a nice touch. The listing also says that the square footage does not reflect the upstairs or the finished basement.

154 South Street

These houses on South Street are some of my favorite. Back in 2011 I featured this house on a Rescue Me post. Often it’s difficult to purchase these properties because it’s a mystery who owns it. Now it’s on the market as a foreclosure and fortunately there are interior photos. Simply put, the inside is a mess and needs to be totally gutted. This is definitely a task for someone with experience with these types of properties. The Newburgh Community Land Bank has put together a nice guide of tax incentives, funding sources, and grants that might be available.
