|Property City:||Oklahoma City|
The deal was brought to us by a realtor in OKC who was a friend of the family. He does his own rehabs, but the project was more work than he wanted to take on at the time. We financed this deal using 18-month no-interest credit cards and our own savings account.
Landscaped and sodded front yard, replaced or repaired rotten wood trim and updated paint colors on the exterior, replaced existing tile and carpet flooring with wood throughout main areas (entry, great room, dining area), completely remodeled kitchen with custom cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, and glass tile back splash, remodeled master bath with custom tile tub surround and custom cabinetry, re-textured walls, removed popcorn ceiling and re-textured ceilings, repainted entire interior, replaced carpet in all bedrooms. All duct work for the HVAC was completely replaced (it was completely rusted out) and rerouted.
We listed the property on the MLS; it was purchased by first-time retail buyers.
Though our finished product was beautiful, we added some sizzle features (under cabinet lighting, glass back splash) that were not necessary. We learned the importance of having a motivated, selling realtor and not just relying on our first connection. Finally, in the future, we will stage our properties. Making our house look like a home would have served us well in providing a better vision for potential buyers.
