Ok this may take a bit of work but ARV looks good.

Contract Price: $354. Should close in late March

Rehab time: 2-3 months
ARV $490-510.

4/2 1600 sq ft in Livermore, CA . Hopefully the market stays hot into spring and summer.

This will be my first pre-2000 built flip so it will be a good learning for me as I am trying to expand. With a full time job this will be interesting.

WOW! congrats! Those are a lot different numbers than we deal with here in the rust belt! LOL!

David Manin, it looks like a decent flip. There are some areas in Livermore that don't get the same value as South Side. Springtown and Old North side, the values for the same sqft are about $450. However, with inventories this low you can always push value a little bit. Is this a short sale? you mentioned seller accepted offer?

no it was a regular sale, never hit mls.

This is in sunset area of Livermore...
