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

Living rent/mortgage free.

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

Craigslist and with the help of an agent.

My own funds for the down-payment (1%) + closing costs. I used a VHDA loan program and 30 fix-rate conventional loan.

How did you add value to the deal?

I did the demo and most of the renovation myself.

What was the outcome?

Cash following property and living rent/mortgage free.

Lessons learned? Challenges?

I want to work on my real-estate business not for it. Long renovation times.

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

Yes, my agent, lender, and contractors.

Hi and congratulations. I am in Manassas and I am looking to do a live-in then rent with my current property which seems to be around the same purchase range as yours. If you don't mind sharing, what is the cashflow like for you?
