Real Estate Purchase Analysis: Buy And Hold Property #4 – The Gambrel

Fourth investment property with gambrel roofI had my eye on this house for a while. It is a pre-1900 home with a gambrel style look. A full remodel took place between 2009 and 2011. The location is an area I’ve really been really expanding in, only about 16 blocks from my first duplex. There is a lot of redevelopment and other positive signs in this area. What is really attractive is that it is at the end of a really small court. So while definitely smack dab in an urban core, it feels almost private. There is a long time tenant in place with no plans to leave.
