Corner lot, single-level duplex with high income potential. Newly updated with mid-century charm. Quick access to I-5, the Sounder Train, Wapato Park & bustling business district of South Tacoma Way highlight the depth and diversity of one of Tacoma’s most underrated communities. Below-market rents mask the more than 8% cap rate, and long-term investment upside. Both units come with new appliances, paint, flooring, electric panels and large open living space. Your next turn-key investment is here.


A little from the sellers about the location, where to eat, what they’ll miss and about the neighborhood -

“The amount of natural light provided by the picture windows.”

“The centrality of the location. Easy access to freeway. Commutes north and south approximately equal in distance. Many routes available to access downtown, waterfront and North End.”

“The variety of eating options nearby. There are numerous restaurants at or around the Tacoma Mall i.e, the Cheesecake Factory, BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, Olive Garden, Red Lobster,and the Outback Steakhouse. We enjoyed eating breakfast at Elmers regularly. Harvest Buffet on 38th Street.”

“Established rhododendrons, Azaleas, Red Mr. Lincoln Rose, Pink Camellia bush and ornamental shrubbery.”


With the Stay At Home order in place, there isn’t much to see and do at the moment, but we wanted to share with you what’s around this Tacoma home, so you’ll know what to explore when we can all enjoy the outdoors again!

All the restaurants mentioned above, except for Elmers and the Harvest Buffet are offering take out at this time. You can order through their apps, websites or delivery service apps.

When things reopen, you’ll appreciate having the Edison City Alehouse just a couple of blocks away! This small neighborhood taproom and bottle shop is in the heart of the historic Edison district of South Tacoma. They specialize in a highly curated, continuously rotating selection of independent craft beer and cider on tap and in bottles.

If you’ve always had a passion for music and wanted to learn how to play the guitar, keyboard, drums or maybe you already own instruments and need new strings or repairs - Ted Brown Music can help you out! Music is essential right now and they’re open for curbside pickup!

The Moore Branch Tacoma Public Library is closed right now too, but when things reopen, it’s only 2 miles away. In the meantime if you’re a Pierce County Resident, you can always register for a library card online, download the Libby app and still enjoy books from home.

We all need a little fresh air right now - thankfully there are a few ways you can do that safely! 2 miles away, you’ll find Wapato Park - an urban park featuring a woodland area, a lake, walking trail, plus a historic pergola full of stunning and colorful. Wapato has a number of trails that you can walk to explore the park, including one circling the lake that is approx .9 miles in length and you can’t beat the beautiful setting of the lake and forest. South Tacoma’s Water Flume Line Trail offers the things that multi use trail fans love. This 2.5 mile (one way) trail connects to other trails and is great for walkers, joggers and cyclists! Some upgrades were made to this trail in 2016 that included a shared-use path for bicycles and pedestrians, ADA compliant curb ramps, new storm drains, pedestrian crossing marking, a traffic signal upgrade, and trail user amenities pedestrian level lighting, benches, signs, and bike racks.

Commuters - the onramp to I-5 is just 5 minutes away!
