Creative reuse of non-mainstream properties

3 Replies

I'm curious if anyone would be willing to share their story about a creative ways to use non-mainstream properties.  For example, taking an old hotel and making it into apartments or an old warehouse and turning into artist lofts (No, I haven't done any of those things).  I'm interested in how you found the property, what got you thinking it could be used for something besides its original design and if it turned it into a money maker.

Do you have a specific location and property (or properties) in mind? There are often many of these projects at any particular time.

I'm in SWFL but I not looking specifically for properties only in FL.  Since SF homes are tough to find I was wondering if anyone had done something creative with an industrial or commercial property (assuming zoning allowed it).

@Greg Flynn may be who you need to contact regarding finding rehab deals such as: SFRs, multi units and commercials for rehabbing and flipping in Jacksonville. Technically not able to advertise on here but you may be able to request this directly from him.
