More Than Meets the Eye in Albany for $79,900

This Albany three-bedroom house is on a quiet, dead-end street, right on the Albany Rail Trail…

…and, that’s good news if you love to ride your bike, take a stroll, or look for ways to get around without a car. The Albany Rail Trail runs from the east side of Albany city west aaaaall the way to Voorheesville, about 10 miles away. That’s a long ride/walk without having to worry about traffic. Or, hop in your car, head north for five minutes, and you’ll be in Downtown Albany. Good location? Check.

For a listing price well under $100K, the 1,300-square-foot home looks to be in fine condition, with enclosed front porch/mud room, hardwood floors, extra room for an office, and a fresh coat of paint.

The kitchen could use an update, but we have to admit, we don’t hate that 1970s avocado stove.

The bedrooms possess some carpeting of intriguing colors, but we’re sure there are more hardwood floors to be found beneath. Overall, the house appears to be move-in ready.

Oh, and did we mention that the house comes equipped with solar panels? According to the listing, you’ll score yourself 3,000 watts of free juice. Take that, Big Utility!

The yard is spacious, and the property could also be purchased with an addition .21-acre lot.
