4 plex analyzing ARV

1 Reply

I've got a 4 plex that I'm trying to figure out the ARV for. I think this project would be perfect for the BRRRR strategy. I'm having trouble finding other comps. There were two 4 plexes sold. One in 2015 and one in 2016, but the market has gotten really hot right now and prices aren't what they used to be. Can I use single family houses and try to do a price per square foot or what is the best approach? Should I use the value of the 4 plexes sold in 2015 and 2016 and add appreciation for the area? How would an appraiser evaluate this property? Any help would be appreciated!

Neither if you are in an area where there are multiple multifamily properties even if they are duplexes or triplexes that will probably be a better option you can find a good median or average cap rate and calculate ARV based on that.
