Investment Info:

Single-family residence fix & flip investment in Snohomish.

Purchase price: $256,000
Cash invested: $1,000
Sale price: $390,000

This was a hoarder house that I purchased direct from seller. The seller contacted me from a direct mail campaign I was running. I spent $50,000 on the rehab. I funded this project using a mix of private money and hard money.

What I learned on this project:
Always get a home inspection before purchasing a project. From the outside, the roof of this property looked fine. Multiple GC's also told me the roof is probably good. (it most definitely was not) When the buyer got their home inspection it turned out the roof was actively leaking AND the furnace was shot and dangerous. If I would have got a home inspection done before hand I would have learned about these issues, and could have negotiated the purchase price lower with the seller.

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