Cully Duplex Builds Equity for Owner-Occupants

By Teri Toombs, February 27, 2018

Do what my clients did. They started off their home ownership journey by purchasing a duplex where they could live in one side and rent out the other. They built equity x2. This is a hard to achieve dream scenario, because there is so much competition for a plex property, but these buyers did it.

After a few years of living here, they are ready to move on to house #2. This Cully duplex has been an amazing springboard for their next move.

5206 & 5208 NE 60th – RMLS #18041539 – listed at $569,900 – sale pending in less than a week.

Ready for your first home/plex? Give me a call! I have another plex coming this spring in the Mississippi district!
