My Notes

This solidly structured vacant townhouse is ready to be renovated and become the investment property or home of your desire. For investors: convert this into a 1-family up to a 5-family; many layouts and options are available. As currently built, there is over 3000 sf of livable space, plus a large back yard that could be transformed into a spectacular garden space, or use the extra space for an extension.Approximately 2000 sf of additional FAR may be available. For the individual or family homeowner: build a duplex or triplex to live in with additional rental units to offset your cost of living and expenses and increase the investment value of the property. The property is an SRO; however, the owner has already acquired a Certificate of No Harassment. Additionally, the current owner has architectural plans for a 5-family on file with DOB and expects to deliver the building with an open approved permit. A full analysis of rent rolls and operating expenses, included in our sell sheet, along with the existing plans on file with DOB can be found in the pdf marked "floorplan" above. This building is situated in Washington Heights just a few blocks away from the Sugar Hill Historic District, giving you a great location without the higher price tag.

      Market guide

      Zillow predicts Washington Heights home values will rise 7.2% next year, compared to a 2% increase for New York as a whole. Among New York homes, this home is valued 680.7% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 16.5% less per square foot.

      Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Washington Heights, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 87.5% less than in New York, and 99% lower than the national average. This lower local number could help Washington Heights home values rise more quickly than other regions in New York.
