Bought for $650k. Rehab was originally $60k budget but we went over because we had to put a new roof on the house, small misc. items needed replacing, and discovered a sewer pipe was corroded/leaking so we had to fix that as well and the rehab came out to a little under $80k. I wanted to do more to the backyard like adding a pergola, BBQ built in, and a fire pit but we were already way out of budget so I wasn't able to do it.
I wish I took pics of the backyard but it was a mess...the pool was drained, there was a dead possum chillin in the pool lol, garbage everywhere from on the ground to inside the pool, big trees and vines growing out of control, old school satellite dish where the bushes/trees surrounding it engulfed the dish because it was never trimmed, there was pergola that was rotted out, the fence was leaning and needed to be replaced....the whole backyard was a mess to a point where you couldn't see the cement on the ground. It was really bad but I knew the potential the backyard had because of the backyard views and it's the only house on the street where the backyard is leveled unlike the other homes where there's like 2-4 levels where it dimishes the size of the backyard.
I'm just happy we are finally done and putting it on the market this Wednesday for $839k. So far we've had great feedback from an open house we did on Sunday and I'm doing an open this Saturday. Hoping to sell this one quick because I've got 1 project that's going to close escrow in 7 days and ready to be remodeled and I should be buying another project by the end of the month/early April. So far this year has been great and busy.
