Since this property is zoned for a single family residence, it appears to have been extensively modified, illegally, into three units, with three kitchens. This will be hard, if not impossible to finance as a result. A investor buyer may need to pay cash for something like this.

I looked up the address and on the MLS and Charo is right it is for sale again but it is still a SFR.

Hi no this is not a multi family dwelling it is a house that was sold in may of 2001 I'm not sure where you got the idea it had three tenents, but, It may have had tenents living there if the previous owner had it rented out. Either way its not for sale right now this is a old listing. If you are serious about buying a home you should hire a realtor (at no cost to you) and let them help you find a home....Dawn

The property you are calling about on 2942 Greenwood Dr, Fremont CA 94536
is a home in Fremont Glenmoore area and per MLS it has

"Home has separate Rec.rm full kitchen & bath.(studio type), Home split to 2/1 full kitchen & bath & 1/1 full kitchen & bath. Total 3-full kitchens 3-full baths. Guest house with permit has been poured (slab & plumbing) Wow !!! Huge yard with NICE waterfall pond !!!"

This home in Fremont is in the category of single family residence. Home owner may have made modification per their needs. It's always a good idea to check with City of Fremont and verify all the
permits before a buyer makes decision to move forward with purchase of the property.

Wish you good luck on your search.

The house is zoned as a single family home. If it is being used as a rental, that does not change the nature of the home.
