Seeking a fixer upper and glad we got it first day on the market, a bit of luck.

What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?

After getting married I looked for something more suitable than a townhome to raise kids. Found a great house that needed lots of TLC and nabbed it up first day on the market. Few years and lots of sweat equity later it's worth nearly double what I paid. It's two units and a great gem in a great neighborhood.
