What would your offer be on this deal?

1 Reply

Hello all, I hope this is where to post on deal analysis. This is an off market deal brought to me in a good school district in Rochester, MN

In talking with a realtor typically multi's are selling for 100x the gross rent.  Rents are currently 1550/month so 155,000 would be the selling price. The owner is asking 220,000 

A standard 10 year old sfr is selling for about 200,000.

Let me know what you think on an offer, if any, I should make. 

Thank you!
