The taxes on the listing are evidently an estimate, since when I checked the tax site the actual taxes are $3740 a year. The same reference states the house was built in 1820, which would make it approximately 191 years old. I would understand your hesitation to pursue this property, but the photos of the house are all very beautiful, and like a previous reply stated, you are protected from being legally bound to a contract on any house that an inspector finds a flaw that would reasonably cost $1500 or more to fix.
I would be happy to assist further with this property, or any others that are available in that area. I am a Corinth native coming from a long line of Clothiers, I know the town and values well, and would be honored for an opportunity to see some properties there with you!
