Hi Mike, I own 209 N. Dorset. We have been able to rent the property yearly for 1400-1500 per month plus utilities. We started out by using it for a second home, the value doubled and we leveraged it and bought another. It's tough right now, managing the debt, however, we know where our money is. If we had the same money in the stock market, it would have disappeared. It can be a little noisy, comparable to living in the city. We like the shops, restaurants, and convenience. There is a good demand for yearly rentals. I'm sure it's a bargain, especially if it is a duplex. You can live in one unit and rent the other. You can have a winter rental if you need the money during the winter. It's like having a small business and it's deductible. Go for it!
When you get too old to drive, you can retire there and take the bus!
