Red Hook Cottage, $185,000

Yes, she’s a tiny lady, but I think this Red Hook cottage has been lovingly tended to. I love the eyebrow windows, and you could probably finish out that garage/barn in the back for additional hang-out space. They’ve managed to pack three beds and two baths into just over 900 square feet of Red Hook real estate, so it’s either a model of efficiency (I do see some built-ins and such) or really crammed! If you don’t need a lot of space and want to be right in town, worth a look. Quarter of an acre lot size.

I notice on a list of comparable homes sold that a 2,000 square foot home in the village of Red Hook sold earlier this year for $170,000. And though valuation models on Property Shark and elsewhere put the value of this place at over $200,000, it seems to me that you could get this one for even less. It looks like it needs a few cosmetic tweaks, even though I think they did a nice job with the kitchen. Stats on the jump.

  1. Oh yes, this is a charmer. I know the street, and I know the house, in fact. The low price surprises me. Sad commentary. I guess home prices really are slipping, like they say. Well, you know what that means: good time to buy.
