Bank Owned Duplex West San Jose for $644,900

There is a very good deal in west San Jose for a duplex with all the right things going for it. It is by far the worse property on the block - yes that is always the best strategy. Buy the dog and upgrade it to match the pristine neighborhood. Side by side configuration with shared garage, hallway and bathroom walls only between the two units. No bedroom walls shared. Good square feet for 2 bedroom, 1 bath units. Nice roof. Well configured backyards. Convenient to Santana Row, El Paseo de Saratoga, Westgate Mall and more. Hardwood floors under very nasty carpeting! Needs paint and some more touch ups and you will have a very nice duplex to live in or to lease out. Call me for a tour - this will go fast.
