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

The schools were good, house was "granny chic" and the numbers looked like they would work. I saw the potential to add a laundry and bathroom to add value.

How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?

It was listed on the MLS, I saw it when it was originally listed, then when it came back on the market and had a price reduction. I figured the seller would be motivated.

How did you finance this deal?


How did you add value to the deal?

Added a laundry and bathroom. Renovated all bathrooms and the kitchen, opened up the living area for more modern day living.

What was the outcome?

I made money! And became obsessed with real estate investing

Lessons learned? Challenges?

Lessons learned- use a licensed plumber and electrician. Even if your GC has experience. That will come back to get you in the inspection.
