House #20 – Before and After

PB060029House #20 is finally finished.  The cleaning lady just finished the property today and boy was she surprised to see how big this house was compared to normal (about 2,300 sq ft).  The house is five bedrooms, three bathrooms and has a garage conversion that is a one bedroom one bathroom apartment.

We tried to make a lot of decisions to save money on this property: we kept a lot of the ugly tile flooring, we did not fix the sloping ceilings in certain rooms, we just cleaned the fireplace and left it as-is, and we did next to no landscaping.

It sounds like we have a renter lined up for this property who will move-in as of December 1st.  The rent on this property is substantial compared to our purchase price, so even though the property is a little bit too big for normal we are hoping to keep it and sell it as the market starts trending up 3-5 years.

The layout of this house is very confusing, we had our draftsman draw up a quick layout just so we could decide what interior walls to move and how the house would end up.

Here is the layout:
