Purchase price: $1,060,000
10 unit mixed-use property (9 apartments, 1 retail) in historic downtown Butler, NJ.
What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?
It was under-managed (passed down to a second generation who wanted nothing to do with the property) and completely mis-marketed. Lastly, it was listed with a residential broker who only had the property on Zillow and did not know what a cap rate was! Also, the retail had a five-year lease and fit well with the demographics of the town. The rents were also substantially below market.

Through our buyers agent. They were asking almost $1.3MM, we bought it for $1,060,000 and also negotiated $100,000 in seller repairs.
