So it’s been just about a year since I set this blog up (April 6th was my first post) and I could never have imagined just how many deals we’d be doing, and how much this blog would grow. To be honest, I had no clue what I was doing when I set this up…. I just used your basic WordPress hosted site and started writing and posting pictures of our various deals. Well, here it is one year later, we’ve built a Flipping Machine, and now I’m looking to build a little nicer website, but there are some serious limitations to using a basic WordPress hosted site…. so the plan is to move the blog over to private hosting and set up a more customized site that offers a richer experience. Right now it’s all a work in progress, but I will let you know when it is complete. (I know your waiting on the edge of your seat!!!!)
OK, back to why you came here; Flipping Houses.
The spring market is here and there are alot of buyers out trying to beat the deadline for the tax credit. So far we’ve put 143 Lloyd Ave and 70 Glenwood St on the market, both are now under agreement with home inspections scheduled for this weekend.
Next up to hit the market is 42 Wexford St. I posted some pics of this house a few weeks back as we were winding down. Now I have all the final pictures of the home finished and staged (you can see the before pictures HERE). Have a look;
On the exterior we added a new roof, installed new windows, painted all the trim, added new shutters, repointed the chimney, added a new driveway, and installed two new garage doors with automatic overhead openers. We also pulled out 7 overgrown shrubs that were blocking the front of the house. The roof on this house was very expensive and kind of caught us by surprise. It has a very steep pitch and because of all the various dormers there were a lot of cuts that needed to be made. Also the roof had two layers of shingles over the original cedar shakes, so all that had to be ripped off and we had to lay new plywood.
On the interior we did a full gut of the kitchen, added the archway and breakfast bar between the kitchen and dining room, opened the wall between the kitchen and living room, redid both bathrooms, added tile to the kitchen and bathroom floors, refinished all the hardwoods, did some new sheetrock, painted everything, did some new electric including a new 200 amp panel, added all new plumbing, and installed a new boiler.
So thats it for Wexford… another successful project. It’s live on the MLS now and with the nice weather we are suppose to have this weekend hopefully we’ll have some traffic and a couple offers to follow!!!
To all my religious folks out there, have a good Good Friday…. and to the rest of you, have a good Friday 🙂
