Exit Stratgeies Abound

Tudor Street, South Boston, MA

In 2016 I was approached with an off market 3 family in South Boston.  I thought this would make good sense to add to my portfolio as South Boston rents were on the rise.  I inherited the building from a man who owned a lot of property in Southie and he was looking to sell some of them to buy some larger investments.  I scored!

The building was full with tenants paying under market rent.  When this building was acquired I thought of the different exit strategy options.  As it stood it could be a condo conversion or a great AirBnb play.  If I was to turn it to condos I would make the 2nd and 3rd floors 2 bedrooms and add a full bathroom to maximize resale value.  If it was an AirBnb play I was going to need to furnish each unit and provide cable/internet.  While both plays seemed very tempting I also put the units for rent for the September 1 cycle, which is the hottest time of year for renters.  The rents were increased by almost 1/3 and so this ended up changing my numbers dramatically.  I decided that this would be a great buy and hold play at the moment.  We will see what the future holds!
