Five-Figure Friday: Poughkeepsie Three-Bedroom Home Near Vassar College, $99,000

  |  December 30, 2016

Don’t poo-poo this five-figure home’s location in Poughkeepsie just yet. The three-bedroom home on with oodles of potential is situated in a nice neighborhood surrounded by neat-as-pins residences and good food right up the street (Babycakes Cafe, Twisted Soul, the Crafted Kup, BurgerFi, etc). Its proximity to Vassar means you’re right next door to live performances, art, and other events.

Now, on to the house itself: We’re not just slinging real estate agent speak when we say this house has “potential.” Yes, it needs some work (Tear up the carpets to find wood floors! Fix the gutters! Repaint! Renovate the kitchen, which comes with zero appliances!), but if you’re not afraid of that, you could make yourself a sweet little home with a big back yard for the family.

Includes one full bath, 1272 square feet, walk-up attic for extra living space (unfinished), living room fireplace, partial basement, and detached garage. Located less than 10 minutes from the train station.

178 Hooker Avenue, Poughkeepsie (Berkshire Hathaway)
