Long term 30 year.

Pulled items up to date that were needed, about 13K and will be raising the rents anually to increase the value. 2019 we will paint and put in all new carpets to add additional value.

What was the outcome?

So far so good, exit strategy will be at the 48-60 month mark for highest Cash on cash return.

Lessons learned? Challenges?

So far make sure all leases are legit, 1 was not and had to work through that with seller and current tenant.
