J. and I like to exert our "sphere of influence" in the neighborhood right around our house, so we were looking for properties to rehab within a 5 block radius of where we live. There were 3 properties all on the same street that caught our eye. 2 of them got saved from the sale by the owner. But I was able to snag the last one for just $1402.01 after no one bid against me!
So here's a glimpse of our next project (at least what we can see is behind all the overgrown trees and weeds!:
|Looks like we need to board up the back door and mow the yard.|
|I love the arched window. Why would you cover that up!?|
But just look at the detail on this house.
We don't exactly own the house yet....we have to wait for a court hearing in December to get final approval of the sale. The sales are rarely overturned, however, so we should own this beauty in just a few short months. That gives us time to finish up our solar project and get mentally prepared to do another rehab. We're going to change this neighborhood one house at a time.
A house for $1400. Amazing, isn't it?
