House Flipping: Avenue House Final Numbers
I cannot tell you how happy I am that the Avenue House is officially CLOSED. Brian and I both walked around for days after it sold chirpily saying, “We don’t have to work on that flip house ever again!” If you’ve followed along with this renovation, you know things did not go smoothly. True to form, the selling process of this house did not go smoothly either!
House Flipping: Avenue House – Exterior
Truth be told, I spent more time than I expected figuring out this odd little yard and how to add curb appeal. The front of the house looked a little blah, but we didn’t have the budget to do anything dramatic like repaint so I had to get creative on how to liven it up without spending much. The backyard was a hot mess (especially after we removed the old wooden ramp) but I think we came up with a budget friendly and low-maintenance solution that the new owner will enjoy.
House Flipping: Avenue House – Bedrooms
The bedrooms in the Avenue House weren’t really anything to write home about. Aside from a decorative fireplace, the rooms didn’t have a lot of redeeming qualities. In fact, the bedrooms left a bit to be desired. One bedroom doesn’t have a closet, and the other has the tiniest closet I have ever seen and a kind of awkward built-in. Brian and I tend to be a little more minimalist when it comes to possessions, so we don’t mind not having a ton of storage space, but even we could recognize this could be a deal breaker for a potential buyer. While we didn’t do much to these rooms, I did want to focus on staging.
