This was a run down house my father in law owned he had given to to someone on lease to own but they wanted to get out. I decided I can purchase the house and fix it to rent it. I have fixed one floor with local contractor and installed new heating cooling and water. There is more work needed and will take another 3-4 months to finish everything up after that I estimate 2200 rent flow.
