We are in the process of purchasing a small apartment complex in North Carolina. The units will require renovations & I need some help determining the most cost-effective way to do this. There are 32 units; 22 2-bd & 10 1-bd. The units, depending on # of bedrooms, are anywhere from 500-600 square feet. No larger than 600. The units are all-brick, built on a crawlspace.
Currently they have older gas heaters. I'm not sure what kind or what condition they are in. But I need to be able to move them so that I can run a w/d hookup in that area.
We're trying to move these units a little more up-market, what's the best solution?
- Retrofit with central heat & a/c
- Thru the wall PTACs (how many of these would I need per apartment?)
or is there some other method of which I am unaware?
Your assistance is appreciated,
