An old apartment block in Greenslopes, located within walking distance of Greenslopes’ hospital and shopping precincts, has sold for $1.76 million, after a previous local investor bought the property for $1.41 million, three months before.

Located within walking distance of Greenslopes’ hospital and shopping precincts, the apartment block on 16 Denman Street has four units that averagely fetch a weekly rent of $1,200. The units’ rent could potentially increase with some improvements or developments to the ageing building.

The property’s four units have different floor plans with the biggest house offering three bedrooms and an exclusive ground floor area. All of the units are currently leased.
