A legal 2-family in Queens for under $300K is going to be tough to find at this time. Not impossible - but tough. If you are willing to put in some sweat equity (fixer upper) then you may get lucky with some of the Real Estate Owned properties or some of the Short Sales. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions or need help locating those types of properties.

Elmhurst 1, Far Rockaway 27, Glendale 1, Hamilton Beach 1, Hollis 1, Jamaica 42, Kew Gardens 1, Maspeth 1, Ozone Park 8, Queens Village 2, Richmond Hill 11, Rockaway Beach 3, Rosedale 4, South Ozone PArk 3, Springfield Gardens 7, St. Albans 8, Woodside 1.
Here's the rub, when I exclude short sales and foreclosures the number falls to just 17 which are as follows. Arverne 2, Broad Channel 1, Far Rockaway 4, Jamaica 7, Rockaway Beach 2, St. Albans 1.
If your handy, or you take out a rehab mortgage foreclosures could be an option for you. As for short sales, you would need an agent that knows short sales, but the guidelines recently changed and you may be able to pick up a short sale bargain. Good luck.
