It was a short sale and I purchased it for a great price.

I found it through my marketing efforts and had a real estate professional negotiate it.

How did you finance this deal?

hard money

How did you add value to the deal?

added an enclosed laundry room and completely updated and remodeled the interior.

What was the outcome?

GREAT PROPERTY- and a great return

Lessons learned? Challenges?

This one took longer than expected as we had to submit renderings etc to the city as we were adding a room.

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