Purchasing partial unit of multifamily properties

2 Replies

For investors that focus on multi family properties, I was curious if you have ever purchased 1 unit of multi unit building? I am new to investing and looking at duplexes mostly. It took me a while, but I am finally starting to find entire building properties for sale, thanks to my mastermind group telling me where to look. Still, there are 1000s of single unit properties out there. My thought is that any rental property with cashflow is a good one, but maybe not when connected to another unit owned by someone with different expectations of home upkeep.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

I would avoid purchasing portions of properties. Being a landlord is tough enough as it is, I do not want to have to deal with another owner(s); especially when large expenses come up; roofs, driveway etc.
