Listing by NWMLS / Windermere Abode Lakewood


Here's one way you can buy a home in this crazy housing market - this updated 3 bed/2 bath home comes with it's own separate rental. That's right, rent out the 2 years new DADU and let your tenant help pay your mortgage. The house itself is move in ready and has bedrooms and bathrooms aplenty. When was the last time you saw a 2nd bath, much less a master suite, in a home this size? And updated windows, wiring, plumbing, heating and roofing make this a low maintenance option for years to come. The DADU is self contained with it's own bath, kitchen, heating and parking off the alley - you don't ever need to see your tenant if you don't want to. Centrally located close to I5, the mall and all the happenings along South Tacoma Way.
