Property Description

Shotgun homes gained popularity in southern communities in the early 19th century. They are recognizable for their small footprint which typically includes one room, 12 feet wide and three or four rooms deep. What they lack in square footage, they more than make up for in charm. They were constructed with efficiency and affordability in mind. Shotgun homes got their name due to their linear design. Others speculate the word shotgun is derived from the Yoruba word togun, meaning house or gathering place. 4866 has a center hall that runs from the front entry foyer to the kitchen and two bedrooms w/private entries. Landlord friendly features include: low maintenance brick exterior, ceramic bath floor, laminate/plank throughout, HWH '20, furnace 10 yrs, fenced level yard and a single parking pad. Kitchen appliances provided by the owner. Cap rate 11.20% based on $39k cash purchase, 10% vacancy, $635/month rent, $2500 annual expenses. No interior photos due to tenant privacy.
