You will not find a multi-family property in better condition with this many bedrooms and baths and off-street parking in a more desirable location for rentals for this price, especially with the potential to increase rents next year. Plus, flood insurance is not required in Zone X and there is little to no landscaping to maintain, so maintenance expenses are much less. Although not new construction, much of the siding was replaced in 2016 and the roof and HVAC were also new in 2016. The electrical and plumbing were new in 2016, including wiring and pipes, all light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, etc. There are 2 electric meters and 2 water meters. Tenants pay all utilities.
Tenants not only pay higher rent ($6050/month) for updated finishes and ample closets, but they appreciate the utility savings that come with tankless water heaters, high efficiency HVAC and wall insulation, all rare downtown!
2018 property taxes were $5711.33 (subject to change). Current insurance (Allstate) is $3274. Flood insurance in Zone X is not required, although carried by current owner ($707). Current management company charges 10% of gross rent, but new owner is not bound to assume management contract. Current owner employs landscaping company, but there is not much to be done as there is little to no landscaping.
