This is an opportunity to purchase three houses and one vacant lot right on the water. The
property was recently listed on the MLS (non-exclusive) but I still have the authority to go
directly to the owner.

Winthrop is a family area close to Boston that was not previously noticed by a lot of young
adults. This has begun to change this year as rents in the surrounding communities are higher
and increasing steadily.
2WT (5 BR/2 Bath) rents to four adults. On July 1, 2013 I raised the rent from $2,025/mo. (plus
utilities) to $2,550/mo.
1WT (6BR/2 Bath) needs the oil heat replaced with gas, and you could immediately raise the
rent from $2,000/mo. (plus utilities) to $2,500/mo.
3WT currently rents for $800/mo. (plus utilities) Rent could be raised to $900 a month with a
modest investment to reduce electrical utility costs.
Initially this is a buy and hold/raising rents. Then you would go through the zoning appeal
process to build on the vacant lot (Lot D) and boathouse (Lot E), total 4,550 sq. ft.
The Winthrop head inspector came out to the property and, when asked, stated that he would
build a single family house on Lots D and E. It would require a variance, but he felt confident
that it would be approved by the Zoning Board of Appeals. You would need to pave the 12 ft.
right of way to the edge of the property to allow emergency vehicle access plus provide two
Per deed, Lot E (boathouse) has “beach, flats, and riparian rights, appurtenant of said premises”.
The new house should have one bathroom per bedroom to maximize rental income.
Exit strategy after building: Sell all or some of the three buildings, individually.
The realtors for this Winthrop, MA real estate deal are walking through on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 10 am. Time is of the essence.
