Property Description

APPROVED SHORT SALE AT LIST PRICE! Easily turn this skeleton of a two-flat into a duplex up and duplex down with RS-3 zoning. However, if you want to go another direction, there are four electrical panels, four water meters, and four electrical meters...just sayin'. Each of the middle floors are framed and plumbed for 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Top floor and basement has 1-2 BRs each and 1 full bath. Down to the studs renovation in process, this is an opportunity to fully customize and finish this two-flat. Building being sold as-is. And while we're on that note, I should mention that the owner "forgot" to order some permits for the work they did. And unfortunately, the City remembered... But all of that extra (non-permitted) work is everything you don't want to do, including: BRAND NEW dug-down concrete slab, NEW siding, about 80% NEW windows, and NEW ductwork...all framed out and mostly cleaned up. The guts in the basement and all things-structural seem to be in great shape, of course with the exception of the main support beam that was replaced with 2x4's. Ugh. And then for sure you'll need the drywall, flooring, cabinets, fixtures. And permits. You'll definitely want to get permits this time. Sold Working with experienced short sale attorney. Bring your contractors, ideas and offers!
