Hi Foxfam- I may have an option for you. In nearby Rumford/ Mexico area-
#1- Currently a 2 or 3 family. Will sell for $35K. Needs about $12K worth of rehab work. Overlooks the big river. About 2/3 acre. No garage. Parking for 2 spaces.
#2- Was used as a 6 family. You could stay in half of it and rent out the other half. Will sell for $32,500. Place needs about $45K worth of work. That might be too much for you in rehab... I don't know. You could spend about $5000 in rehab to be able to move into it, and then work on the other stuff little by little...
The 2 family we could do owner financing, after you put down about 10%.
The larger one- I would need $15K in cash and could do all the rest owner-financed.
BOTH of these are on town water and sewer, and in decent neighborhoods. If you're interested further, please email me for details. Thanks, and good luck,
