Property Description

This classic, brick 9-unit apartment building features spacious and efficient units with open floor plans. The Purnell is comprised of 7 one-bedroom units and 2 studio units. Most units have private entrances in addition to access from the common areas. Located on a bus line in Bellingham's charming Fountain District, the Purnell offers the new owner a fantastic value-add opportunity. Current rents are 10% below market as is. However, with extensive but cosmetic updates to the units, the rents for these units can easily be increased by upwards of 25-30%. In addition, the new buyer will have the first opportunity to purchase the newly remodeled adjacent rental house, which offers the new owner additional income or possible development.
