One of the reasons the home is so cheap is the remoteness of Van Buren.  It is a typical small, Aroostook County town.  According to Wikipedia, Van Buren sits right on the border with New Brunswick.  The Saint John River acts as the United States / Canadian border, in this case.  It will take about a half hour to get to the City of Presque Isle, 90 minutes to get to Houlton, just under 4 hours to get to Bangor, and 5 hours to get to Augusta.  It is REMOTE!  As of the 2020 census the town's population was just over 2,000.
