What Can I Get For Under $500,000?

Happy New Year! Now that the holidays are over and we’re all back to the grind, I’m excited to pick up where I left off at the end of 2011 with my “What Can I Get For…?” series. If you recall, my last column before the holidays detailed what you can purchase for under $750,000, and the one before that was what you could purchase for under $1 million.

This week, we tackle the under-$500,000 category. It’s easier than you think, too. A lot of these properties can be purchased with as little as 3.5 percent down payment.

Live in one, enjoy the income from the others. This mid-century triplex is situated on a corner lot and has lots of potential for upgrading and increase in rents. New copper plumbing. The largest unit is vacant with a fireplace. Perfect for an owner/user!

So there you have it. And there are tons more just like this. If I could fit them all on this page, I would. If you’d like to see some more examples, or are interested in what you might be able to find for yourself in this most affordable of price ranges, please feel free to give me a call. And if you know anyone who may be considering buying or selling a home in the near future, please don’t hesitate to have them call me, and I will take excellent care of them. Happy 2012!
