Real Estate: 154 South St $25,000

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.

  • For 25k this looks like a good deal. That part of South Street is rough. But i worked on a house on North Miller and have a friend that lives near this house. The roof dosnt seem to be leaking into the house so it might not need a total rehab. But again at 25k this is most likley the best house for that money you would ever come across.
