The finished houses are going to be coming fast and furious over the next few weeks. My plan of buying a bunch of properties in Oct.-Dec. to have ready for the Spring market and the expiration of the First Time Buyer tax credit is playing out perfectly.
I showed you our finished house on Ravenwood St a few days back. Now have a look at our property located at 143 Lloyd Ave in Springfield. We did a pretty extensive rehab on this property including new siding, a new roof, new windows, new kitchen, new bathroom, new boiler, all new plumbing, new flooring and fresh paint. We also took a 3 season enclosed breezeway located between the garage and kitchen and turned it into living space. This additional living area is a great feature as it adds space for a formal dining room or family room.
Here it is (you can see the before pictures HERE) :
Wow, so thats it…. came out pretty darn nice!!! You can see what it looked like before here: Lloyd Ave Before Pics.
We were suppose to be closing on the big ugly pink and purple house this week but there are a few title issues that need to be cleared up, so looks like we will be waiting a little longer on that one. Heres a picture of that house in case you don’t remember it:
Well, thats all I got for tonight. I looked at eight properties today; four that I want to buy, and four that we already own… and now I’m ready for bed.
