This multi-unit home offers incredible value with its huge income potential and the flexibility that it offers homebuyers that are open to living in one unit while leasing the other.

This sweet duplex in Gardena features a large fenced-in front yard, 2 units, (2 bed 2 bath and a 1 bed 1 bath), plus a 2-car garage. Get yourself a stable 2 bed 2 bath home, plus rental income from the second unit. At 789k, it is a bargain.

#3 South Bay Real Estate Bargain

1262 W 2nd St, San Pedro

The true value of this home is the presence of a 2nd bathroom and the possibility that the large detached garage offers an ADU that could bring in rental income.

If you definitely need a 2nd bathroom in your SFR, this is a deal at 719k. This dwelling needs updating but is clean and move-in ready with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large detached garage (again great for ADU and rental potential), and a great location perched high up on a hill in San Pedro with harbor views from the street.
