Amazing value in this Triplex in the heart of the action. This building features (2) one bedroom units and a large two bedroom unit that are ready to go. This property is SURROUNDED by new construction and values have doubled over the last 2 years. This well-built triplex affords you option to place your own tenants in two of the units and the 3rd unit (the 2 bedroom) has a lease that will expire in June; this unit is currently rented for SIGNIFICANTLY less than market value. This home has all of the utilities separated for you and the comps are crazy.... the duplex 2 doors down sold for $543,000 in November. Don't sleep on this one as this is a homerun for BOTH an investor or someone who wants to live in one unit, rent the other 2 out, and basically live for free! Call me with any questions.
