    I just love this place!! Small and cozy. Looks to be in pretty good shape, too… and very inexpensive! I hope someone gets it and really loves it.

    Seems like a steal for a wonderful little property!

    Is this real? Seems like too much of a good deal. I love this property.

    The beauty of the interior caught me by surprise. Very quaint vibe going on.

    Now…the foundation might explain the really low price? Some weirdness going on there, imho.

    Cute, but right on top of the highway.
    Really good price, depending on the “issues”.

    looks like some serious foundation issues to deal with-expensive foundation issues. Love the house and the septic thing isn’t scary. The foundation is scary to me.

    Foundation issues are an obvious big ticket repair. Not to mention a royal PIA!

    I was wondering about the foundation…forgive a stupid question, but is it possible to just build a suitable foundation inside the existing basement? I am not talking about just pumping it full of concrete (although that wouldn’t necessarily be a deal breaker :)…) I was thinking of the feasibility of building a good solid basement within the existing crumbly one. I am wondering what the “septic plan’ is… is it just exactly what it says, an estimate and schematic, or is it the plan required by the inspectors to bring it up to code. Here in Florida, with our karst topography and high water table, septic tanks are a very big deal, and require lots of bells and whistles and redundancies (and rightly so). Septic tanks are no longer allowed anywhere near any rivers or coastal areas, but I think Maine is more granite than limestone.

    Given the fact that the foundation walls appear to be poured concrete and there are no fireplaces,l would hazard a guess that this house dates around the 1930’s
    The cost for replacing foundation walls in my area is about 10,000.00 per side.It could be much less in rural Maine.

    An adorable house I looked at in Roswell NM needed basement reinforcement work done, and the owner said it would cost $60,000. That stopped my interest immediately. What is realistic?
