This bank-owned home at 290 North Coventry Rd. in West Hempstead is on the market for $299,900. "It looks like it was redone, but it wasn't finished," says marketing agent Larry Chorne of Island Advantage Realty in explaining the low asking price. First off, the house needs a kitchen -- there currently isn't one. "Then, it needs a bunch of touching up," he adds, explaining that someone ran wiring for recessed lighting but never installed the lights. The 2,440-square-foot home has five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The property is 65 by 93 feet. Marketing agent: Larry Chorne, Island Advantage Realty, 516-368-8585
