Investor friendly agent Leah Keeling is about to help her client close on this duplex. It’s located just outside the Mesa Junction neighborhood, a great area full of large Victorian homes.  The 1990s duplex gives the client the best of both worlds: the beauty of a historic area without the problems that come with a historic home.  They came in strong with a $255K offer, $5K over list price, and got the property.  

The client is getting three sources of income by renting out the two units plus the detached garage.  Despite hiring a property manager and having a 7.125% interest rate, he’s still cash flowing $7K annually and has an 8.2% cap rate!

This is one of the best performing long term rentals we’ve come across in a long time.  Usually to see numbers like these, clients are using more time consuming medium term rental or rent by room strategies. Don’t let today’s interest rates deter you: this property shows that with the right deal, you can still get strong returns.

In This Episode We Cover

  • Why this Pueblo duplex was such a steal! It’s a 3 bed/1 bath unit and a 2 bed/1 bath unit both with attached garage space. Plus, there’s a detached garage with brand new electrical panel that he’ll rent out as a workshop or storage space.
  • How this Denver-based client’s motivation, market research, and attention to detail helped him find the property 1 minute after it was listed
  • How Leah was able to get information from the listing agent and current tenants to figure out what they needed to offer to land the deal
  • Why it was worth paying $20K in initial repair costs, including replacing a poorly built staircase and deck
  • Our excitement to see such strong numbers on a long term rental
