    “As-is”–always a sign of a house I’m going to love! More pictures please, realtor!

    Wow, instant nostalgia! The outside looks very familiar… It reminds me so much of my grandparent’s home. It’s exactly the same age as well. I don’t know where Cato is but my grandparent’s live in Susquehanna PA and they’re 3 miles from the New York border. It’s so gorgeous up there in the mountains.

    This house is in the village of Meridian (pop. 300), which is 2 miles from Cato (pop. 500) in the Finger Lakes area west of Syracuse. Can’t find any specifics on the house though it’s typical of the vernacular Greek Revivals that were built across western New York in the early Erie Canal era from 1825 to 1850. The NRHP listed William Smith Ingham House is across the street, and the Ingham store is now the local bar at the corner.

    “Seller does not prorate taxes”…does that mean there may be unpaid back taxes? If so, that should be taken into consideration by the buyer. The exterior retains the Greek Revival details but they are difficult to find inside. (or were not photographed) The house is priced well for a property with a 1.5 acre lot. Someone knowledgeable about original Greek Revival interiors could probably put that period flavor back into the house if they wished. Buyer should keep in mind this is an “as is, where is sale” and do all necessary inspections to make sure they are comfortable with the purchase.

  8. In North Carolina, the taxes are paid by the seller to the date of closing and from the date of closing by the buyer. There is nothing in the law that says you can dicker with this rule, so seeing things in listings from all over the country sometimes surprises me. This did.

      We have the same real estate law in Texas. A neighbor of ours sold his home, paid taxes to the time of closing at the title company, but was quite surprised to receive a delinquent tax letter months later. Apparently, the buyer (who was a lawyer) received the tax money but did not pay the taxes at the end of the year. He later did pay but my former neighbor was quite upset to continue receiving past due notices almost a year after the sale. He finally took off work to go down to the tax office to straighten things out. The property has since been sold again to a developer. I guess property tax responsibilities at the time of sale vary from state to state.

    So sad to see this being foreclosed due to non payment of (high New York) property taxes. It’s beautiful.

    It’s a nice village in Cayuga County, a pretty farming area in the Finger Lakes. Cato is closer to Lake Ontario, though, and not far from both Oswego and Syracuse. Winter’s a problem but a lovey area.
