$3k in taxes on a $189k building? That is excessive.
Kspaz does not approve.

that's a baller home in that area. the last one my family owned was a four story twin with gas lighting and outhouse with only two electric circuits in the kitchen area. we sold it several years back for 4500 bucks orbo. the best offer we got was free.

And I gotta be honest, it really doesn't look all that big.

I saw a builder I know in the watering hole last weekend, and he told me they recently finished a 25,000 sq. ft. $19M house 15-20 miles from here. I cannot imagine what a $19M house looks like. FWIW, it is in the same township where Tom Golisano, founder of Paychex lives.

When I looked at your post, and the interior pictures, I was thinking there should be a zero tacked onto the price.

Some areas the real estate is simply free. Years back I looked into moving my business and all to Johnstown PA for just that reason. I don't have "customers" in the typical sense. Location means 0 to me. I was watching one of those RE shows on Sunday morning before football and was blown away. Took a weekend and got a B&B, went to Johnstown. Well, it's a different world. 1 home in 5 is vacant. Population dropped >33% in the previous 12 years. Democrat leadership for 70 years running, and 100% of the economy is public works projects. Taxes are cheap. Housing is literally free. IOW, just sign your name to the title and you can have it. I was looking at a place that was listed for just north of 200k, would have been 2m anywhere else. A 30K+ Sq Ft Commercial bldg with 440V service, freight elevators, 3 floors, 16' ceilings on all 3, new roof, paved parking for 30, rail access, offices, city water, sewer and NG, loading docks and all, asking $80k. Realtor said they'd take $60.

Heh, like size, location matters. There is a lot of wealth around Rochester NY. And real estate prices are very stable, probably dropping somewhat during recessions, but nothing like other areas in the country.

Where my dad was from, Elk County, PA, it is a pretty depressed area. Not much going on there, the average person there (just guessing) makes maybe half of what people in this area make.

When I checked demographics of Johnstown, this is going back a few years now, let's say 4 or so, I want to say medial household income was 28K??? I went out to a nice bar (I say nice, as nice as they had) and had dinner. While there, every single conversation I overheard was about money issues. It was sad really. People were all nice as could be, but to say the area was depressed doesn't describe it. I was drinking bottles of Celebration Ale for $2. It's $50/case here. Anything more and nobody could afford it.

Here's the place I went to look at. It didn't sell for $219 and they took it off the market. This house is ALL steel construction with every joist is a steel beam. When I say straight as a die, I mean looks like the Pyramids. Stone tile roof, all copper gutters. Ceramic tile courtyard, chestnut woodwork thoughout. Spectacular. With a view over the entire city...
