Detached 1.5-Storey Flip or Rental in Hamilton!! Assigned

  • $590,000
  • 7 beds
  • 2 baths
  • 1205 sqft

This mostly brick, detached 1.5-storey is located in Hamilton’s Westdale neighbourhood and is within a short drive to Hwy 403 access and a 4-minute walk to the McMaster University campus. This property is in a student rental hub and offers vacant possession for a landlord-buyer to place their own tenants and cashflow as a lucrative income property. The closing date is at the end of April and leaves time for an Investor to make strategic improvements, allow for schools to reopen, and lease out the 7 bedrooms by the next school term! Alternatively, there is also room in this deal for the Investor to flip it as a single-family and re-list on the MLS in the $700,000s!! This property has a garage, raised backyard deck, newer roof (2018), and new gas boiler, distinguishing it from some of the recent comps with less impressive features. Under $600,000 and only in need of some cosmetic updating, this property is uncommon at this price for 1,200+ sq ft detached. Don’t miss out!!

We are selling our assignable purchase contract.

Closing is April 30th, 2021
