Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Newburgh, Indiana

By Sablemable aka Jan

One of our readers, Glenn,  sent us a MCM home to feature today.  Newburgh is located in southern Indiana on the banks of the Ohio River, just east of Evansville.

The home is located at 901 W. State Road 662 and was built in 1965.  There are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a partially finished full basement, a 2-car detached garage and 1,508 square feet of living space.  The house needs a LOT of MCM-TLC and there appears to be water damage in the living room ceiling, which means it probably needs a new roof-plywood and felt included.  This is also a Fannie Mae home.  The price is $67,500.00 and if you are fit and able to bring this home back to its former glory, then rush to your telephone and call Becky Demastus from ERA Advantage Realty, Inc. at (812)858-2400.

There is a dining room, but for some reason it wouldn’t load.  I would guess that it’s located off of the living room.

 

Even though this home badly needs love and attention, it is still a great looking home.  I believe with any government owned home; i.e., Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD, you have to put a bid in. 

Any takers?

    I hope this home finds a new owner that will help bring it back to life. It is a darling little house with, as they say, a lot of potential!

    Personally, the black mold is something I would avoid. Plus, can you get a hi Elian for the relaid the roof needs? I think Fannie Mae homes are as-is.

    Wow, lots of potential there! I really hope whoever buys it does restore it.
