As prices continue to rise, homebuyers are looking for ways to mitigate ever higher mortgage payments.
Enter the duplex.
Rather than move to a distant 'burb, buyers can offset some of the expense of homeownership in the Bay if they buy a duplex and rent out one unit. Of course, there is the added work of being a landlord and all the attendant laws that go with that. But then again, the extra income can be very helpful. Plus, a group of friends or multiple generations in a family can be close to each other but not too close (read: under the same roof).
And if you happen to be looking for a duplex in the East Bay, we just so happen to have a duplex listing right now, check it out at www.3437henrietta.com.
