Yesterday was a big day. Not only was it our two-year wedding anniversary, but yesterday we officially picked up a little (ahem, huge) hobby.
Have you figured it out yet from the title, or do you need a few more hints? Let’s see . . .
. . . it’s a big investment . . .
. . . a little risky . . .
. . . a lot of fun . . .
. . . a huge amount of work . . .
. . . and it involves flipping houses.
This house, to be exact.
A beauty it is not – yet. But it will be. And it’s positively overflowing with potential – 2,450 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths (which we’ll convert into 3 full baths), a pool, a great street . . . I could keep gushing, but I’ll spare you for now. And we negotiated our butts off for a phenomenal deal – almost $100,000 less than the original listing price, and $70,000 under its appraised value.
And as of 2:30 p.m. yesterday, it’s ours. But hopefully not for long. Our goal is to have this sucker back on the market in about 2 months – it’s doable but tight, and we’ll have to be on top of the renovation at all times. Luckily we learned the ropes during our own remodel last year.
So what do you think? Have we officially flipped out? Or are we destined for huge success? Chime in!
Be sure to stay tuned for all the trials and tribulations of our very first flip.
