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

Needed to stop renting and building somebody else's wealth

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

Bought it from our Landlord and she gave us a deal we couldn't refuse!

How did you add value to the deal?

My Wife and I worked our tails off doing 99% of the renovations ourselves over the last couple years

Lessons learned? Challenges?

We should have found Bigger Pockets Sooner! We would have been more prepared for the process and most likely have completed this rehab much sooner

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

Not yet, just starting to look for our second property.
