My Notes

Edit
Rare Opportunity! Beautiful 2-Family with many updates. Fully rented with good income stream. Off-Street parking for 4-5 cars plus a separate garage. Located in Brighton Mills, close to WGBH, multiple bus lines, and easy access to MassPike & other major roadways. Top Floor has central air & access to attic storage. First floor has extended use in basement - basement is completely finished. Great opportunity to boost rental income. Both rents could easily be increased. Tenants are in place until 8/31/14 with interest in renewing. Both units share very similar layouts. HUGE Bedrooms, modern Eat-In-Kitchens with dishwashers, and updated bathrooms. This is a turn-key property. Purchase and collect rent. Increase your ROI with increased rents as of September 1st. Plus great potential for value appreciation with all the development that is taking place across the street at WGBH & in next door in Lower Allston with Harvard. Also potential to owner-occupy first floor and basement.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts Brighton home values will rise 1.9% next year, compared to a 1.4% rise for Boston as a whole. Among Brighton homes, this home is valued 115.7% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 19.1% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Brighton, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 80.9% lower than in Boston, and 91.4% lower than the national average. This lower local number could help Brighton home values rise more quickly than other regions in Boston.
