Yet another completed Rehab… 104 Columbus Ave Holyoke, MA – Finished and Staged

Here is another amazing home we finished and just brought to the market.

This property is located at 104 Columbus Avein Holyoke MA. We did a full gut renovation of this property, bringing it down to the studs. We rearranged the floorplan to give it a great open feel. We enlarged the kitchen and the first floor bath. We also finished the second floor into a master suite complete with it’s own full bath.

The major problem we had to deal with on this house was some structural issues caused by 4 layers of shingles on the roof. With all that weight on the roof it was crushing the house. So the roof was stripped and there’s only 1 layer on there now. We also had to build new foundation walls to give the house a solid structure to sit on. Our contractor jacked the house up, rebuilt the foundation, and resupported the band joist and floor joists. Now the house is as strong as an Ox!!!

Here are the pictures of the completed home; (you can see the before pictures HERE)

104 Columbus Ave, Holyoke – New Rehab & Deal Updates

Time for my weekly update.

We put the property at 93 White St in Westfield MA on the market last Thursday and we accepted an offer after the first weekend of showings. We actually had multiple offers on the property and sold it for slightly above our asking price. We priced this one pretty aggresively so I’m not surprised that we received a couple offers. 

239 Plumtree Rd is looking like it will be sold this week…. probably on Friday. 37 Mansfield St is under agreement with a closing scheduled for December. We were able to get a buyer for this one without even having to put it on the MLS! I’ll get some photos up of the finished rehab…it came out great!!

We have six properties under some stage of renovation and we are suppose to buy another this week.

104 Columbus Ave Holyoke MA

We closed on this property about two weeks ago. It’s a small cottage style home with 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath and a little over 1,100 sq. ft.  This house has some structural issues that we need to address. The roof had four layers of shingles and was so heavy that it was literally crushing the house!! The weight caused the rimm joist (the main joist that the exterior walls sit on) to crack and buckle out, which caused the house to sink about 3-4 inches. When the rimm joist cracked and kicked out it caused a bunch of the floor joists to also crack and bend. To fix this we are going to have to jack up the whole house and build a new foundation. Once we have a fresh new foundation we will fix the rimm joist and floor joists and set it back down. While we are at it we will gut the first floor and finish the attic space into another bedroom with a half bath.
