Ellendale House Flip Project

I haven’t done too many deal updates here recently, and I can tell you that it’s not because we have no projects to work on… actually it’s just the opposite. Hampden Homebuyers has been on a bit of a tear since the new year buying and selling quite a few properties.

Over one three week period in February I think we put like 10-12 houses under contract to purchase. Couple that with the best Real Estate Investor Coaching that we are doing and it has been a busy time.

One project we are working on getting rehabbed is our Ellendale house. This is a really nice brick ranch with a hip roof. It is almost 1,700 square feet but only two bedrooms. Yes, it has a lot of wasted space.

Well we are going to change all that around. This is a full gut project. We are changing the floorplan quite a bit and adding two new bedrooms. When we’re done we’ll have a 4 bedroom 2 full bath home with a little under 2,000 square feet plus a fully finished basement.

Our demo guys beat me to the house and had it ripped apart before I could get some real before pictures, but these are close enough:

Now here is a little video we put together with some of the progress and an overview of our rehab plans:


So what do you think? Looks like a fun little project doesn’t it….

Tornado House Update – Springfield House Flip

We’ve been banging away at the new tornado damaged house in Springfield.

Our guys were there all last week getting the demo done and prepping for the new roof to go on. We’ve got to completely rebuild the roof and we will be adding some new soffits and overhangs to the roofline.

Inside all the damaged sheetrock has been removed and we also pulled up all the damaged hardwoods.

We’ll be rearranging the floorplan a bit by removing the wall between the living room and kitchen/dining room area. We are also going to alter the current kitchen layout to make some more space and make the flow more functional.

Here’s some pics of the demo work:

As we started taking up the hardwoods we found a lot of the subfloor underneath was bad, so we are going to be  replacing some large sections of subfloor also.

Well that’s all the updates for now. I’ll post some new pics as we get more exterior work done.

We opened the wall between the living room and kitchen to give the space a nice open and airy feel. Look at how smooth that tape job is!!!

House Flip Before and After – 93 White St

I haven’t done any of these cool before and afters in a long time. I’m about 20-30 properties behind 🙁

I’m gonna make a point to get caught up so you can see all our beautiful transformations!


Here is a look at the before and afters of our rehab at 93 White St in Westfield. This was a fire damaged 2 family house that had sustained significant fire damage to the second floor unit. We ended up gutting both units and doing a full renovation.

151 Bowdoin St, Historic Rehab

151 Bowdoin St Before

Our historic beauty at 151 Bowdoin is complete. All thats left is cleaning and staging the home.

This was an epic project. When we bought the house we knew we were in for a challenge.It looked like a big old purple haunted house!

The house was basically stripped when we got it…. nothing was left in the kitchen, there was no plumbing or heating systems, and the exterior was in deplorable condition.

In the end I think it came out real nice.

Have a look at the unstaged photos: (you can see all the before pics HERE and the before video HERE)

Happy Thanksgiving and Foundation Work

First off I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoyed your turkey…. or if you’re like my partner Dominic, I hope you enjoyed your steak (yes Dominic eats Filet Mignon on Thanksgiving, what a snob!!)

We tackled the foundation repair at Bruce St over the last week.

Our first step was to jack the house up and tear out the bad walls. Here’s what it looked like;

Foundation Gone

A View from the Inside

Once this was complete we laid a new footing and rebuilt the wall.

Here’s a video with an update of the progress:


We’ve been using a new video man to film and put our movies together. I think they are coming out real nice….. alot better than those old movies I was putting together in Windows Movie Maker!!

Well that’s all I got for now. We’ve got a couple new purchases in the works…. and are selling some of our finished properties. The market has slowed down for the winter and holidays, but there are still a good amount of buyers out there actively looking for new homes!!

More Bruce St Demo

Wow, this demo stuff is fun!!!! Check out the little video we made from the first day of demo at our Bruce St project.




We now have the new roof built up, it is all framed, has new plywood and is shingled.

We have also stripped all the old siding off the house and have it ready for our awesome new Tan siding.

If you look closely at the pictures above you can see we have dug out all along the foundation wall on the right side of the house. This is the wall that we are going to be tearing out and replacing. It is cracking right in the middle and has a real nasty bow to it.

Here are some pics of the bad foundation, look closely and you can see the way it bows in right in the middle:

Its Leaning in a Little Bit!!!

I'm Holding the Camera Straight... See that Lean



So thats our next big fix at this house. Right now the house is all jacked up off the foundation and the bad wall will be torn out and rebuilt.

– Happy Flipping
