Hi Eric,

I've worked with alot of NY investors who have completed flips and long term cash flowing rental properties in the Temple University Hospital area as well as TU Main Campus.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your project. I can help you comp out the units and project realistic market rent rolls to use in your financial analysis.

All the best,

Why sell? If you can compete with some of the other nice rentals that draw from the dental school you can postion yourself with strong rental income. If you do have to sell you better make sure the building is leased up and priced with a good cap rate. That would be how you price/comp it so to speak.

your question begs more questions for any kind of useful answer.

To guestimate yourself - try zillow et al. IMO the least valuable in an investment property scenario as you are unlikely to have the anwers to the questions below, about your place.

1. Rented or Vacant. - and if rented the leases and financials
2. "Rennovation" lipstick (paint carpet) or real work - systems new(er) etc.
3. Utilities - owner pays, tennant pays - or some kind of split.

All critical questions that dramatically change any true picture of value.

Want good numbers. Hire a realtor from the area experienced with investment properties, not the king or queen of (my beautiful) owner occupied re-sale homes. that is me, and others who post anwers.

Contact me if you'd like to talk further

Eric, you can do some preliminary research on your own through trulia, zillow, and other online resources. As they mentioned, the next step is selecting a broker to run a CMA. Even better if the broker has experience running BPOs (broker price opinion). If you'd like to call me to chat, feel free. 215-467-4100.

It sounds like very unique property. It depends not only on the comps but what the rental rates will be.

You may want to consider having a professional appraisal done after you complete renovations & check out the rental comps since any investor/purchaser is going to look at cap rate/cash flow first.

If I can be of further assistance, please get in touch.
