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

I have been wanting to flip a home for many years. This home came up in a very sought after neighborhood and was in great disrepair which made it appealing to me.

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

I had been watching it going into foreclosure however we were not quite ready to pull the trigger yet and then as soon as we were we drove by for one last look and there was a sign in the yard so we purchased it through MLS.

How did you finance this deal?

We used a HELOC on our home for the down payment and took out a commercial loan to finance the home and the repairs.

How did you add value to the deal?

We have been investing a ton of sweat equity and giving it a very unique custom look and feel

What was the outcome?

Still Pending

Lessons learned? Challenges?

Lots of lessons learned which is what we were hoping for. Mostly it is the preparation and organization. We have learned better ways to organize the projects so that we are not constantly going back and fourth.

Did you work with any real estate professionals (agents, lenders, etc.) that you'd recommend to others?

I am a real estate agent myself so if course I used this to my advantage in the purchase and will again in the sale. I would highly recommend myself hands down:)

Hi Amanda, I don’t think so as homes in this area are not even making it to the mls before selling so we hope that we have what people are looking for now. Thank you
