The Most Affordable House for Sale in Orange County is in…
I've said it once before but it bears repeating: Hudson Valley real estate pricing is ridiculous. Well, kind of.
There are still some affordable gems on the market but it takes some digging; just last week I showed you that the cheapest house for sale in Poughkeepsie even has a pool. But what about on the west (and best) side of the Hudson River? While Orange County is tenth-wealthiest county in the entire state, there are still some homes that are actually realistic for those of us not choosing which Range Rover to use when you bring your Pomeranian to the doggy spa.
My wife and I are perfect examples of people searching for an affordable place to live, and finding it in Orange County. We love our sub-900-square-foot cottage in the town of Newburgh. Truth is, it was the only area with the perfect mix of affordability, home quality, and the proximity to nature that we were looking for. So, if you're looking for a place to put down roots in the real OC, check out the most affordable house for sale on the market right now. Not only might the location surprise you, but the quality of home as well, because I went searching outside of Newburgh this time.
Some quick guidelines: I'm highlighting two houses here because I wanted to make sure I was covering all the bases. The first find is a great house in a planned community with a new kitchen and more for under $60,000. But if you're not looking to move in to a residential park, read on to check out a beautiful find with custom beam ceilings, new everything, and over .5 acre of land! Also, I've avoided houses listed as cash sales, as-in condition, or with any other factor that would stop the house from being move-in ready. Ok, let's check 'em out!
$54,999 in New Windsor
The most affordable move-in ready, 980-square-foot house for sale is a "mobile" home with a newly redone kitchen and newer appliances.
There's even a spacious living room, too.
For under $60,000, this place also offers newer windows and water heater, and washer/dryer hook ups.
