Legal Non-Conforming Duplex, Brick Flip in Hamilton!! Assigned

  • $549,999
  • 4 beds
  • 2 baths
  • 1568 sqft
This legal non-conforming duplex is available at an appealing discount in Hamilton’s growing Gibson neighbourhood. It’s a 2.5 storey, all-brick detached century home with a basement walk-up, private parking, 2 kitchens, and a master loft. The owner paid $480,000 on MLS for this property in November of 2020, did some moderate updates, and now 6 months later an Investor only needs to pay 13% more when natural appreciation has carried Hamilton up nearly 30%. This LNC duplex is almost turnkey to rent, but could benefit from some cosmetic updates and minor maintenance. An Investor has upfront equity and ample room for forced appreciation. In May 2021, you can’t miss out on this amazing wholesale price!!

We are selling our assignable purchase contract.

Closing is July 9th, 2021
