How did you find and structure the financing of this deal?
This property had been on the MLS for quite some time and was owned by the Bank. We submitted a low offer through our agent and the bank accepted. We acquired funding from a Private Lender who funded the acquisition and raised private money from friends and acquaintances for the rehab cost.
Provide a summary of the repairs and improvements you made to the property.
This property was a partial gut where we took out portions of the house. For example, we removed the fireplace from the middle of the floor and removed the half bath from in the kitchen. We gutted the kitchen, bathrooms, and redesigned the layout to reflect an open floor plan. We added state of the art finishes such as exotic granite, new hardwood floors, kitchenaid appliances, double island, skylights, finished basement with wetbar and bedroom, wetbar in the Master bedroom suite, stand alone tub, beautiful landscaping and a pull down garage door. We also added an alarm system and an intercom system to play music throughout the house via wifi
How did you find a buyer for the property if you sold it?
Our agent marketed the property on the MLS and held one open house. This house was under contract in 15 days. This property was featured in the Compass Nationwide newsletter
What are some of the major lessons learned that you would like to share with other students that they can learn from?
Purchasing a house at the end of August going into the fall and winter, it is important to schedule and make sure to do the outside work before the weather changes.
