Welcome to the culmination of a shared dream, where tradition intertwines seamlessly with innovation, giving rise to homes that are not just dwellings but legacies in the making. Discover the magic of infill development as these homes seamlessly integrate into the fabric of Charleston's historic landscape, revitalizing the neighborhood with their contemporary flair and timeless appeal. This investment opportunity is also ripe for exponential growth: a multi-unit property in a bustling urban area.This property is already performing well, with steady rental income from its units. However, the potential for significant improvement lies in the strategy of the purchaser occupying one unit while short-term renting out the others. By doing so, not only can the owner enjoy the benefits of homeownership, such as tax deductions and equity accumulation, but they can also tap into the lucrative short-term rental market, capitalizing on the increasing demand for temporary accommodations driven by tourism, business travel, and the rise of remote work. This dual-income stream approach not only boosts cash flow but also offers flexibility in managing the property. With the right marketing and management strategies, this investment has the potential to yield exponential returns, making it an attractive proposition for savvy investors looking to maximize their profits in the real estate market. Currently rents 265 A $7500/month & 265 B/$7000/month.
