64-05 Gates Avenue
A two-story, multi-family home with five bedrooms and two bathrooms, this pre-war brick building just hit the market within the past three weeks. There’s approximately 3,300 square feet of living space in the Colonial-style home, a patio, 11 total rooms, hardwood floors, a full basement with a separate entrance, and a private driveway and garage.
Multi-family? Don't think so. It's a legal 2-family. "full basement with separate entrance" - We know what that means. The Trulia listing features a photo of a garage containing a confederate flag. Classy.
17-43 Grove Street
A two-family home, which has been converted into a three-family, income-generating building, this property could be a steal. It’s been on the market for nearly five months, possibly because it needs a fair share of work done on it. A buyer with the means though might want to take advantage of its availability. The property is on a beautiful, tree-lined street close to mass transit, and has a spacious backyard.
A 2 family home that was converted into a 3? Not legally. Not even a permit filed. Trulia calls it "Beautiful two family home set up like a three family."
The photo accompanying the article really takes the cake. (And I doubt it was an April Fool's joke.)
