The property has been in the same ownership since 2003 and most of the tenants are long-time tenants that are on month-to-month leases.

The property has been well maintained throughout current ownership with recently incorporated cost-efficient features such as, electricity-generating solar system (zero electric bill – the owner receives a credit from electric provider), “electric eye”, 600-gallon solar water central heating system (a $30,000 upgrade), newer polyurethane roof, dual-pane windows, many new air conditioning units, on-site laundry (machines owned), and 1.5 GPF plumbing.
