*it’s back!!

***ARV over $500k
****CA$H buyers preferred

DIRECTLY across from AGH: James Street Garage. Middle of the 3 in the row.

HAS A GARAGE – see pic near end of reel to see the parcel boundaries!
*can rent garage out for a high price to hospital employees if no use for it; area is >81% walkable.

MANY FRAME ROWHOUSES in immediate vicinity selling for over $500k; going rate is between $300,000 & $550,000 & rising, depending on how far you go in rehab: cLiCk
*also can see comps pics in reel.

Rental prices have skyrocketed since last listed; now looking at $2,000 – $2,850/month.

As photos clearly show, needs almost everything, ROI = as high as you want it to be; minimum cash return of $100k, up to perhaps $250k. CAP can also reach 10-11% if you go that route & hold onto it for more equity .. the hospital isn’t going anywhere!


  1. While it’s full of stuff, a lot of that stuff is antiques of value(!)
  2. Stained-glass windows
  3. Little addition on the rear; can have contractor evaluate for another bath
  4. Hardwood floors
  5. Electric is updated(!!)
