I recently (3 weeks ago) purchased a duplex in Wilmington NC. I just completed a complete renovation of the vacant side ( MY FIRST RENO). Here is the video of the renovation I just completed!
Will rent at $800 in average low income neighborhood. Cash flow on duplex is around $600/mo. Did I over renovate?
I couldn't get the youtube video... :(

Thank you. It was an incredibly fun experience. I think I have found a new passion. Hope to flip several properties next year.
GREAT job!! We just renovated one of our apartments and used the vinyl plank flooring. I'm amazed at how realistic it looks. Should be lots better than carpet in the long run. Waterproof, mold proof, sturdy.
I think you selections are great. I believe in being just a bit nicer than the comps, and it looks like you nailed it.
All good to hear! Thank you
Nice job. Cool music. Best of luck with it and your goals for next year.
@Jennifer Umbaugh I like how you strategically avoided the mirrors. I do the same thing when I do video walk throughs :)
Looks great. I think you did a nice rehab that should attract a nice tenant. Well done!
watch out with vinyl plank, i used it and it scratched for me very easily.... I put it in about 15 units and after the first year 5 looked bad from scratches. All though I am renting to college students. I switched to wood grain looking tile at 2.50 a square foot. It's done awesome so far!
Congratulations Jenifer. Thanks for sharing
Awesome job! It's contagious isn't it ;)
We have done well, doing "slightly" nicer upgrades on our rentals when we renovate. It helps us stay up with the times by getting ahead as we do quality repairs that last.
Thanks so much for the input and encouragement. Taking something old, dated and dirty and making it nice is contagious!
Nice job! Do you have a video of how it looked pre rehab?
Job well done! Always love seeing other people's projects!

Here are some photos post-demo. I neglected to take pre-demo photos. Lesson learned.
