The best person to truly answer your question is a reptuable multi-family broker in your market. My advice from marketing properties, is the 36 unit property will be more attractive to would-be investors when you decide to sell. Also, the property will most likely be easier to obtain financing from a greater pool of lenders versus the smaller units. When considering management, your local broker should have a good idea of the economic threshold for hiring a property manager. Now is a great time to buy, good luck to you!
