So the ink is barely dry on the closing documents from selling our last flip and we’re already on the hunt for the next one – I’m excited!
Today we scoped out 10 houses, and have plans to see 3 more by the weekend. We are open to venturing out of our comfort zone a bit – new neighborhoods, homes that need additions, etc. It’s kind of scary but I think that we’ll be fine if we do our research (which, if course, we will do to the point of exhaustion).
Out of today’s lineup, we’re going to be crunching the numbers on the following four houses. (Obviously these houses are a lot less fuzzy-looking in real life, I’ve just decided to take the YHL-approach to showing you the photos from our home search – see their explanation here.)
Pros: Location, charming details
Cons: Needs an addition, no garage
Pros: Neighborhood & style of house that we’re comfortable with
Cons: Needs fence & new windows, need to work with the layout a bit
Pros: Historical charm, hardwoods, workable kitchen, location
Cons: No garage, probably needs an addition
Pros: Price, location, hardwood floors
Cons: Partial garage conversion, tiny backyard, needs new windows & possibly new roof, number of bedrooms
I’m not sure if any of these will be the winner, but they have enough checks in the “pro” column to make them contenders. What things are/were important to you when searching for your home?
