So this is my current Family home, Its a house hack/Brrrr. We built right before the lumber prices went up and ended up getting the house appraised for $265,000. We had the house built with a lot of basic's So that I could do a lot of the upgrades much cheaper. My plan is to let the house get seasoned while I have been doing the upgrades, once its ready pull out the equity out and Buy another one. I have been doing the comps and I'm thinking I should be able to pull $75,000 out of this deal.
