64 Fullerton St, Rehab Complete – House Flip Update

Last week we sold our almost new construction rehab at 9 Juliette St in Chicopee MA. We found this buyer just two weeks back and he was willing to pay cash for the property so we were able to get it closed up real quick. Our buyer did want some changes made to the house so we had our contractor Jason busting his ass to get them done in a very tight time frame. All in all it was a pretty good deal. We did take a slight discount on our asking price due to the “cash” status of our buyer…. but when your buyer gives a non-refundable $10k deposit and wants to close in 2 weeks you become a bit more flexible as a seller.

Now onto some ongoing projects;

Our 64 Fullerton St rehab is complete and now on the market.

This property was a full interior gut renovation with new electrical, new plumbing, new heating system, new kitchen, adding a half bath, installing all new windows, adding insulation, new sheetrock, new paint and all new flooring. The outside needed alot of landscaping and tree clearing, but it did have a new roof and good siding when we purchased the home.

We did have to do some major work to the 2 car garage. This consisted of tearing off a falling down addition, siding the garage and doing a new roof on the garage.

Overall I think we spent a little over $50k on the renovations…. and the house came out awesome, as usual.

Check out the video and photos we did of 64 Fullerton St. (You can see all the before pics HERE)

Dorothy Ave Sold, Fullerton St Interior Update

35 Dorothy Ave Chicopee MA complete

We sold our 35 Dorothy Ave rehab on Monday. This was a short sale that we purchased back at the end of April/early May. The rehab was pretty easy and took just under 30 days. We put the house on the market in June and got an offer in 1 day! The biggest challenge we had with this deal was in working with the new buyers lender. They wouldn’t waive the 90 day FHA seasoning requirements so we had to wait the 90 days to sign the P&S and to be able to close. This cost us a little bit of time but it wasn’t too bad.

All in all this was a really smooth deal, even the short sale negotiations to purchase the house went real quick.

Now onto an interior update for 64 Fullerton St.

In my last post I showed you how the house looked inside after we had gutted it out. Well I took some more recent photos of the interior as we are starting the finish work there. All the sheetrock is up, everything is painted, and we are starting down the home stretch.

Here’s how she looks:

Pretty soon this one will be done, then it’s time to stage it and bring it to the market!

House Flip Update: 64 Fullerton St

The 64 Fullerton St project is moving right along.

We had to do quite a bit of yard work and tree removal to this property. There were a number of large trees surrounding the house, yard and garage that we removed. You can see some of them in the pictures below:

Our landscaper and contractor spent a long weekend playing Lumberjack and took them all down. It really makes a big difference…. check out the pictures below:

The majority of the exterior work is now done. Along with the tree removal we put in a new driveway, sided and roofed the garage, tore off the addition on the garage, and added some new garage doors.

Here’s how it looked yesterday when I was at the house.

64 Fullerton Exterior Nearly Complete

We didn’t have to do siding or a roof on the main house, we were able to just powerwash it and put some new shutters on the house.

The inside is almost complete now too. Below are some photos of when we first gutted the house out and the plumbers and electricians were doing there rough ins. You can see all the before pictures HERE.

We should be finishing up the interior work on this one pretty soon so I’ll post some more pics as we wrap that up.

Another Fun Full Gut Rehab

We started work on an awesome new project located at 64 Fullerton St. This house sits right across the street from our rehab we completed and sold at 53 Fullerton St.

We purchased both properties as REO’s. The nice thing about both Fullerton properties is that they each came with additional building lots that we were able to subdivide off.  53 Fullerton had 1 extra lot on the right hand side of the house. 64 Fullerton has 2 additional building lots, one located on each side of the house. Our plan is to find a buyer or 3 and build some new houses on our lots. 

From the outside Fullerton doesn’t look like a bad house. It has newer vinyl siding and a new roof…. but once you get inside it is a different story, the house is pretty nasty. Everything inside the house is old, dirty and looks like crap, so we are going to gut it out and make it look nice!

The plan is to do all new electric, new heating system, new driveway, new plumbing, add a half bath to the first floor, new kitchen, new full bath, and rearrange the floorplan both upstairs and downstairs. We will also be redoing the giant 2 car garage that sits detached from the house.

Here’s a look at our before pictures:
