Hard Money

I acted as the agent and handled the operations

What was the outcome?

Overall it was a good flip, we netted just shy of 20% in 4.5 months

Lessons learned? Challenges?

We missed a recent water tank replacement by the seller and bought as is so we had to clear the permit and would've budgeted to have updated the bathroom more but overall we were happy with the finish

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

I am an agent and property manager so I handled most of the operations myself. We've been using Katie Haller for insurance and I have an internal GC that I use from the management company.
