82 Lasalle St, East Longmeadow…. Finished and Staged

We finished up the work at 82 Lasalle St last week and we staged it over the weekend. It came out great!! I thought we had it pre-sold but that my not work out so we will be putting it on the market this week. In the kitchen we did granite counters and a real nice appliance package that includes a top of the line Bosch Fridge…. its gorgeous.

We’re still going strong churning through our pipeline of rehabs and working hard on the acquisition front. We got two new short sales approved over the last two weeks so I’m gonna have to make some posts on those.

We’re still waiting for the property on Mansfield St to close. We initially got held up on this one because we couldn’t get the building inspector to issue our certificate of occupancy as he was away on vacation…. that added an extra week and a half to our closing schedule, and now that we’re ready our buyer is not. The lender now has to reverify employment and what not now that we are in a new month… and it is dragging on.

So here are the pictures of Lasalle St;

I’m thinking this house will go quickly. It’s got a lot of nice features including the oversized garage, half acre lot, and it’s located in a great neighborhood.

On to the next one!!!!

82 Lasalle St Update

Our project on Lasalle St in East Longmeadow is almost done. All thats left to do is the tile backsplash in the kitchen and bringing in the appliances. We are going with all stainless steel appliances in this house and we scored a really sweet deal on a high end Bosch fridge.

This was a pretty easy job for us and I think we may already have a buyer for the house. You can see the before pictures here.

I hope everyone is having a great New Year and you guys are closing some deals. This week we should be selling the property on Mansfield St and purchasing a new short sale that we got approved before Christmas.  Also we’ve got two meetings with a couple new private investors… should be a good week!!

Giving Thanks for Easy Rehabs

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

I spent the last week visiting family in South Carolina for the holiday…. but I’m back home now and it’s time to get back to work.

All rehabs are moving forward nicely. I think we have 7 houses under renovation right now so we are crazy busy! We actually put another rehab under contract the day I left for South Carolina and we will be closing on it either this Friday or next week on Mon or Tues. I’ll give you the details of that property once we close on it.

Fortunately not all our ongoing projects are full guts like Gifford St and Columbus Ave . We bought a light cosmetic rehab about two weeks ago, located at 82 Lasalle St in East Longmeadow, MA,  and we began construction on it Monday. This house is in the best condition by far out of all the properties we’ve bought. The sellers were downsizing and had already found their retirement home. They didn’t want to deal with the hassles of listing the property with a realtor and they didn’t want to face the prospects of missing out on their retirement home dealing with the delays associated with working with traditional buyers. The seller found our company website over the internet and said we are exactly what he is looking for. We took a look at the house, negotiated a fair deal, and closed on it in two weeks.

The house is already sided and has a new roof on it. We are going to do some upgrades to the kitchen and bathroom, paint all the walls, refinish the hardwoods, install new windows, upgrade the electrical panel and do some other misc. upgrades. This should be an easy two week job and we’ll have it back on the market. Here are some pictures of the house:

So thats it… the furnace is good, the water heater is good, the sellers already sided it and put a new roof on it.  We’ll modernize it and bring it up to todays standards than we’ll unleash it to the market.

So what do you think?? Looks a little easier than Gifford St!!
