For a veritable song, you can scoop up this Ravena house and turn it into the sweetest little cottage in town. 

Considering its rock-bottom price, this 1,120-square-foot, c.1890s house is in pretty decent shape if in serious need of an exterior paint job, de-carpeting, and a new kitchen. It’s still affordable, even with a rehab loan, even more so if you can DIY it. Shouldn’t be too hard, right?

In fact, we don’t know exactly how hard it would be to fix up this little house, but if “as-is” is included anywhere in the listing description, best to assume the worst and be pleasantly surprised if it’s not all bad news. However, we love the original wood trim, doors, and hardware, and the kitchen is a blank canvas that could be a home chef’s dream…

…HOWEVER, there is what could be somewhat of an issue with the bedrooms…or, bedROOM (singular). There are other rooms, but they are walk-outs from the main bedroom, so if you’re hoping for some privacy from the other three bedrooms, you’ll have to reconfigure the second floor.

Some bonus items include: an enclosed entrance off the side, some replaced windows, updated 200-amp electric, and a newer asphalt shingle roof.

The house sits on a 1/10th of an acre right in the middle of the Albany County village, walking-distance to shops and businesses. From here, the I-87 Thruway is convenient, as is Route 9W, the Capital District, the Hudson River, and Greene County.
