If you have the cash handy, this could be a very affordable home (if the interior isn’t collapsing). The auction is starting off at $10,000. I have been watching this home. The sale has fallen through once already, but I will tell you it took about $35,000 to win the auction and have the minimum accepted bid met. No interior photos and you cannot bother the current occupant to look inside.
There are a few abandoned homes on this block, don’t let that scare you. One has been bought by a new family who plans to live there, and the others are in the process of being sold. The neighbors are very friendly and often sit out in chairs and chat with people passing by. One proud Puerto Rican neighbor who has been there for at least 30 years told me it was “the best block in Newburgh, no problems here.” Atlas industries is just a few doors down, Washington HQ’s is down the street, East Parmenter is one block away, and well by now, you should know the rest.
