In the past couple of weeks I’ve gotten really excited about some new listings that have come on the market, and some good price cuts on others that have brought them into my "Well, at this price this is really interesting" category. I’ve picked out 9 listings priced from $219K to $399K that are among my current faves.

This list includes an adorable renovated schoolhouse (complete with working bell) near Fremont Center for $299K, a tastefully updated house on a few acres at the edge of the village of Jeffesonville for $219,900, a pretty stylish renovation of an older ‘cape’ style on 5 acres in Bethel for $285,000 (gotta love the cement countertops!) and a very privately set farmhouse on 17 acres outside of Callicoon Center for $379K. There’s also a rarely available Catskills Farms’ house on 5 acres near Eldred just listed for $338,000.
I’m not saying that all of these houses have everything that a second home buyer could want. The lakefront house for $319,000 on Bodine Lake needs some updating and reconfiguring, and its not secluded and set in the woods — but its more lakefront house for the money than I’ve seen in a while. The Callicoon Center farmhouse isn’t a ‘magazine ready’ renovation, but is cozy and very private. The $399,000 house at Loch Ada can use some updating (well, lots) and lightening up, but has plenty of space and potential to go along with the inground pool and tennis court.
I have my eye on a dozen or so other listings that are just on the verge of moving into my "Favorites" but aren’t quite there yet. Some need just need to go on a little bit more of a price diet. And there’s a small renovated farmhouse, for example, that made a nice drop from $489,000 to $429,000 in the last few weeks, but didn’t quite make this group because I wanted to cap these favorites at $400,000.
