Why hasn't anybody touched this?

3 Replies

I've been looking at properties all around the Denver/Boulder area trying to find a cheap place to start a long term buy & hold strategy, and one sticks out. It's been on the market since at least early August, it's gone down in price $6500. By the 2% and 50% rules, this thing seems like a great buy. It should cash flow immediately. But there it sits, unbought. What am I overlooking, why isn't anybody touching this thing?

@Dylan Wright :

Dylan, I did some research on the MLS and came up with a good reason it has not sold. It currently has a lot rent of $600/month, this drastically changes the 2% rule. As @Andrew Syrios said it is a manufactured home and is located in a Mobile Home park, therefore you only own the home, no land. Hope his is helpful. If you'd like PM me your email and I can send you the listing straight from Metrolist. Cheers!
