Small multi-family (2-4 units) buy & hold investment in Chicago.
Purchase price: $870,000
Cash invested: $217,500
Bought this new building in Chicago from a seller. Negotiated for year long for price and finally agreed on $870k. Property apprised much higher $1.02k with rental income of $85k per year. I used one of my rental condos and HELOC to fund the downpayment of deal and got a check of $1500 at closing table so i didn't bring any cash of my own. Within 6 months i could refinance and payback my condo. After paying monthly loan payment i will still make $1400 cash flow at minimum after expenses
