January 18, 2021

This home generates a monthly income of $2,600. It is currently set up as three apartments and the guest cottage. I would take it back to single family and use the cottage as rental income. This home was built in 1895. It is located on .4 acres in Sumter, South Carolina. The home has original hardwood floors, a cute covered front porch, wood walls and ceilings in some rooms, and tall ceilings. The home does have a new roof. Looks like it needs cosmetic work and updating. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,569 square feet. $175,000
