The Painted Lady is bursting with character and personality. Each
room is decorated with bright pastel colors. You can't beat the
location, neighborhood or home. Indeed, this is Louisville's most
popular and beloved neighborhood known for its picturesque historic
architecture. Visitors here are not only walking distance of gonzo
writer Hunter Thompson's childhood home but walking distance to
Louisville's most popular four star restaurants from around the world and the best nightlife for locals. Why live anywhere else when you can get such a great home and neighborhood?
Home of a rock star? This beautiful Victorian was used in the MGM movie "The Song" when the star reached the top of the charts and lived the rock style life. The producers thought the home was so awesome they kept the pictures and furniture in place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=881_3tbHNBQ
Last but not least: You can buy this amazing historic Victorian duplex for $349,500 and with the ground floor unit leased out on a two-year lease your net cost of living a month after all expenses is approximately $416.25. In addition you will build up roughly $390 of equity a month on a standard 30-year fixed mortgage at 4% APR and get an annual interest rate tax shelter of $10, 400.
In other words, the economics of this deal is; you hardly pay anything with the tenant paying most of the mortgage at $1,750 a month that includes half gas and electric. Please call me about the economics of this tremendous investment opportunity.
