Amanda Shea Rehab Deal


Amanda Shea Rehab Deal

Altered Properties, LLC in Westport, CT
Amanda Shea with Amanda and Chris Shea

We found the property on the MLS and reached out to the listing broker directly. The house was bank owned had been vacant for two years and was in disrepair. The listing broker had a relationship with the bank and was able to get our below listing price offer accepted. We funded the purchase with 20 percent of our money and 80 percent with hard money. We funded the renovations with 100 percent hard money. We tore off the existing kitchen and added a new kitchen/dining area with a master bedroom/bathroom suite above. With the new space upstairs, we were able to add a laundry room and walk-in closets. We completely staged the home and marketed one of the four bedrooms as a home office which is in huge demand because of the pandemic. As the project progressed, more and more people were moving out of NYC causing the "buyers market" to switch to a "sellers market" in Connecticut.
