There’s a lot of talk about getting rich quick by “flipping” houses. Fueled by the HGTV
shows, you simply find a distressed property, fix it up, sell it and voila! You’ve made money! Right? Well, the thing is, this is much easier said than done. You have to be prepared for the unexpected. Who knew that the tub would fall through the second floor bathroom into the kitchen the day after closing?! (This happened to a client of mine when I was a broker in Washington State)
Here’s a safer bet. If you are considering moving for whatever reason, how about flipping your own house? New carpet, paint and other more minor repairs can make a world of difference. If you want to do the work yourself, please have Eric and I stop by ahead of time to give a free consultation on the best way to proceed.
Check out these before and after pictures from our seller in Lafayette! Our seller was out of town, so Team Howlett, with the amazing help of Property Solutions, did the “flip” for him. Jeff Martin,owner of Property Solutions, is a genius in getting the biggest bang for the buck for our sellers. He painted the entire interior, including walls and all trim, replaced both bathroom floors, recarpeted all bedrooms and great room, and put a new counter top
and mirror in the master bath. All materials and labor were only 5,000 and the seller stands to make at least twice that from putting the money in ahead of time.
Then Team Howlett came in and worked our FREE staging magic! This transformation of real estate in Lafayette is astonishing! Click on any of the photos to expand!
We never get tired of seeing a job well done. Give us a call to see how we can help you! We pride ourselves on pre-sale project help, great staging and then fantastic photos!
