I am about ready to buy a place to live and in my city that would cost ~$800k minimum for a 800 sq ft 2 bed in a decent neighborhood. Looking around though, I am seeing that i could get a 2-3 unit place (albeit not as nicely finished) in the ~$2/3m range. I am in a market that is on par with NYC for rent levels.
Anyone have any color on how making the move to buy a triplex/duplex has gone? I would plan to live in one of the units and rent out the others.
