This Coxsackie Victorian house is listed for a song, but be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get to work before the renovations even start. 

Purchasing a foreclosure isn’t exactly a walk in the park. For starters, you can’t get an inspection before you buy, so with it comes to a home like this three-bedroom fixer-upper, you may not know what you’re getting yourself into. If you do decide to take the plunge, all of the home’s back-taxes and liens become your responsibility, and you may need to pony up cash for the property all at once. The heart wants what it wants, however, even if it’s a turn-of-the-century Victorian that needs a complete renovation, inside and out.
