Catskill Village Victorian, $119,000

Ah, good bones, great potential. We know what that’s code for, but even so, this downtown Catskill Victorian seems like a good buy. Close to the river, close to “Always Improving” Main Street, in that sweet neighborhood of neat (and always improving) vintage homes. It’s got five beds, one-and-a-half baths, a nice porch (a must if you’re going to live in the village, says me). The place was sold in 2007, during the real estate frenzy, for $135,000, so the owner must be resigned to taking a loss. (Back in 2002, the place was sold for one dollar, according to Property Shark!) It can’t be in too bad shape, since the last assessor gave it a grade of B. Has but a teeny tiny yard, but there’s some nice greenery nearby. This is the kind of price that fuels my dreams. Stats on the jump.
