1750 Orange St, York, PA 17404
$68,800 Sold for $55,000
No doubt most of the endearing details have been stripped from the interior of this foreclosure, but the exterior is simply adorable. It appears from Google Maps, that a sister stone house is situated next door. Both had white picket fences and privacy bushes which have since been removed.
It also looks like the home was originally a two-bedroom. The previous owner of my son’s Virginia house did the same thing. He plans to put the wall back up to make it a two-bedroom again. A new owner of this stone cottage would most likely do the same here.
Crime stats are low. Taxes are high.

143 Benson St, Bowersville, GA 30516
$50,000 Reduced to $45,000 Sold for $35,000
The fixer upper sits on a one acre lot in Bowersville, Georgia, a tiny town of 465 residents near the South Carolina border. The property is adjacent to the town hall and post office building. In fact, in 1883 Bowersville was named after Joe Bowers, a local post office official.
High ceilings, beadboard galore and hardwood floors are key elements. Although the porch needs work, there is enough fretwork there to replicate a restoration. The house requires significant cash and sweat equity to bring it back to its former self but will be well worth the effort. Super low crime and tax rates.

13 Main St, Fultonville, NY 12072
$75,000 Sold for $75,000
This gorgeous church for sale in Fultonville, New York, was constructed in 1892 as the Calvary Baptist Church. In 1936, a deacon of the church invited the Rev. Floyd Lepper, a lay preacher of the Amsterdam Pilgrim Holiness Church, to give a sermon. Soon after, the building was transferred to the ownership of the Pilgrim Holiness church with the dissolution of the Calvary Baptists.
The church building was purchased for $1,700. In 1939, the Pilgrim Holiness Church was organized by Rev. A. H. Wilson and Rev. H. J. Olsen with a membership of 25, and in 1939, the church was dedicated. The congregation paid off the $1,700 debt in 1945, and the members had a ceremonial burning of the mortgage papers.
Over the decades a number of repairs and improvements were made to both the church structure and the parsonage. With a declining membership, however, the Pilgrim Holiness Church shuttered its doors and has not functioned as a church since 1992.
Not only would the church make a stunning home, but its great acoustics might lend its use as a music venue or recording studio.

7262 Alder St E, Webster, WI 54893
$38,000 Sold for $28,000
How about a tiny house on 1.2 rural acres in Webster, Wisconsin?
Lots of people are into the tiny house lifestyle these days. I enjoy watching the tiny house shows on TV and envy those who can simplify, but after my own personal experience with a quasi tiny house, it is not a lifestyle that I want to live again.
You see when we first moved from our 15-acre hobby farm in upstate New York to Cape May, New Jersey, my husband wanted to purchase a house outright, mortgage free. The only thing that we could afford then was a 750 square foot bungalow on a small lot right near the Delaware Bay.
We started with four kids under age eight in that house, but our family soon grew to six kids. Sometimes the noise level was deafening. I went around like a chicken without a head all the time keeping that place neat as a pin. There was one closet in the house, and that housed the hot water heater. And one bathroom for eight people was a nightmare.
I feel like a Grinch now, but I didn’t allow Playdoh, finger paints or Legos in the house for fear of big messes. To have them play outside most of the time, the kids had bikes, big wheels, a trampoline, sporting goods, and of course the bay beach as a playground, but very few indoor toys. That was one upside to a tiny house. All the kids are now physically fit and active adults.
Anyway, a year before the seventh kid arrived, we purchased a big American foursquare on an acre. I finally had a quiet space to read a book in peace and breathe again.
Looking for a Tiny House in the Northwoods, this is one dynamite location outside of Webster, even hooked to city sewer. Lots of room for a huge garage w/bunkhouse for more sleeping space! Bathroom remodel includes new toilet and bathroom flooring is scheduled to be completed. Great buy!!
