This community is full of amenities including:  a pool, beautifully landscaped grounds, covered parking, shuffleboard, and its own marina area. As a bonus this unit comes with its own boat slip/dock and lift.  This is valued at over $30,000 just for the dock/slip.

The unit itself is in excellent condition.  It needs limited work (paint, carpet, and fixtures).

The result:

Cash flow after Taxes, Insurance, HOA, & Property Management expense (using $1250 rent on the unit and $250 on the boat slip) = $756/mo (assuming cash purchase) or 4.43% yield

Estimated 1 year appreciation using 4.5% = $9450*

Year 1 ROI (net return after vacancy, maintenance, and all fixed costs + 4.5% growth) = 9%

*This unit was on the market for over $400,000 at the peak!
