Hello, I'm currently stationed in the UK but will be moving back to the States next year. Most likely, I'll be moving to the Colorado Springs area I'm looking to do some homework on purchasing a mutlifamily complex, such as du/tri/quad-plexes. I am looking to do the "house hacking" thing, so preferably the more units the better, but, at this point, I'm not too picky. Not yet anyway. Where are good places to look. I've been looking on the big common sites like Century 21 and Zillow, but I'm only finding individual units in Townhouses and such. Any advise would be appreciated. Cheers!
@Benjamin Thompson I am a Realtor and I service CO Springs. I would love to set you up on a list that sends you all On-Market MF properties in the area. Just PM me if interested.
@Tanner Crawley , thanks! I sent you a message.
@Robin Searle Thanks for the response! We'll chat, cheers!
Zillow is great - but check out the MLS - lots of realty sites let you browse the MLS at no charge and no realtor. "Loopnet" is another one worth exploring.
@Account Closed , thanks! I'll look into that more. Cheers!
@Benjamin Thompson I'm closing on a house today in Old Colorado City, and will be moving there next month. Very excited. I originally wanted to buy a duplex also, but could not find anything that nice. Most of the duplexes, Tri's and Quads are on the east side, and not in the best neighborhoods. Which is why I got a house on the west side. I would not go further east past Union Blvd. It's just not that great. Crime rates become much higher. I thought about Pueblo also, but again, nothing to good down there either, that didn't need massive rehabing. I spent months looking for places, and have a good realtor @Les Goss , who really went out of his way to find my place. I do not know what your loan will be, mine was $230K, so a smallish number, but I got a great house, in a great neighborhood for $217k. Research your neighborhoods. Trulia has great crime, school, etc...info on their site.
