There’s nothing better than a new listing on the market that throws down the gauntlet with killer looks at a competitive price. May I present my very first head turner, 6208 Hayes Avenue, SoulfulAbode’s Debut of the Day!
This 1922 California bungalow clocks in at 1233 square feet on a 4800 square foot lot and is located on a tree lined street with well maintained character homes. The big draw of course is that it’s two homes on one lot. By income property standards, this is as good as it gets and made even more so by it’s modest $398k price tag. Rent the rear out and live with a comfortable mortgage in the front.
The front house, a 2 bedroom/1 bath, sparkles with dark hardwood floors, a new kitchen, a bright and airy floor plan and light to spare in every room.
The master bedroom includes an en suite bath and direct access to the patio and yard.
The rear house, a 1 bedroom/1 bath, is similarly decked out with hardwood floors, a separate kitchen and spacious bedroom. With rents in the area for a 1br fetching minimally $800, a looker like this one may get even more.
Although this was a flip that closed last fall, the owners appear to have done a pretty bang up job by installing new roofs, windows, plumbing, electrical and tankless water heaters, while at the same time, adding some much needed landscape and exterior flourishes.
For those of you who might feel uncertain about planting roots in Highland Park, don’t. It’s one of the best deals in Los Angeles proper–especially if you’re in the market for a historic property with good bones. It’s no surprise that development groups like ModOp, among others, are snapping up some of the best lumps of coal Highland Park has to offer and creating diamonds. If you would like more information or would like to view this property, just ask.
