These are some the things I wanted to have done for the home. I can only
go up to $25,000. I know there are probably some things I would have to
eliminate, but seeing whether it can be done. By the way, it's a small
2-story home worth $52000.

get some legitimate local bids bozo. even though one of the local
morons who might have remodeled his shack 14 years ago will be along to
give you 'expert' advice and maybe even attempt to give you an idea on
prices, you can't expect someone here to give you this.
So, you break those things down into groups that a single contractor will do,
like roofing, electrical, sheetrock, deck, concrete, and then get bids. Do
the MUST DO things first, like to roof. Be sure the electrical is done before
the sheetrock is done.
You forgot to mention your geospatial coordinates but guessing from a 900 sq.
ft., 2 story (or is 900 the footprint?) and the 52K value, you're not in a
$6K assuming the roof deck needs no more than a few replacements, also assuming
30yr asphalt shingling.
No experience, but if you're replacing a pro/nat gas with the same about 3-4K.
<%500, max. Could probably do it yourself for $60
Replacing the whole wall or replacing sheetrock, or tearing out plaster?
Replace or new? Dimensions? Slope?
Dimensions, loadbearing, new slab or parge the old?
Above grade or below?
Basement door? Double-door or single?
Size and what's the original problem that need repair? Cracks, water damage or
Length of run? Obstructed access?
$80 if you do it yourself and don't need to replace the channels.
Depends on the location of the nearest circuit, but probably around $100 each.
Too many variables, need more info.
Fans, lights, what? The cost of the fixtures will probably be more than the
cost of the labor but you could do it yourself for cheap.0
$.33 each, on sale, DIY.
Adding ain't replacing. You can get 20 receptacles for $4 on sale so if all
you're doing is swapping new for old I wouldn't even bid this out unless there
are major problems with the old. If you're adding new receptacles figure $40
each if you've got decent access.
I'm guessing, just guessing mind you, but all told you're looking at around
$23-28K depending on your labor market. The roof and the furnace/boiler are
probably your two biggest costs but the nicke-and-dime crud is going to eat you
alive, and the drywalling is going to be messy as hell. If you can rip the
damaged stuff out your self and prep the area you might save a couple thousand.
Even drywallers hate demo-ing drywall.
