I am in the middle of my second one now. I have worked non stop for almost 2 months. I just finished laying tile in the kitchen about 20 minutes ago. I will grout it tomorrow.
Bought this one for 188k, putting in almost 20k and will put back on the market (next week I hope) for 300k. Comp homes in area are asking 310-350k. I just want to move it fast, especially since the market has slowed down. 2500 sq ft, 1/4, corner lot with pool. What a dump this thing was when I got it, absolutely gross! The place smelled like cat pee and the pool looked like the black lagoon. I still can not get over the blue pool I have now.
Every single thing is brand new in this house at this point. I still have to install the granite counters, put in some baseboards, tile the laundry room, and then do some light trim work and then I am finally finished. The fence is getting put up tomorrow (got all the wood for that today too.) Carpet goes in this Friday as well!
I'm so glad this is almost done, I'm whipped. I love the process, but at this point after having only two days off in two months I am about ready to slice my wrists......I'm ready to be done! The money is great though, there is no doubt about it. I think the main thing is not to panic buy, have it inspected and whatever your projected budget is add another 5k and 2-3 weeks onto that! I am not afraid to make insanely low offers either.
This one fell right in my lap; I stopped at a garage sale and found out the owners were getting divorced and would be selling soon. I made them an offer the next day.
