A final look at the Garfield project

So we are finally completed and I’m not going to lie, this property posed several challenges for us. Sometimes houses need saving and this one was in need of one big time. From changing out the led water line, to having to re-sister all of the joists because so many were completely compromised to our furnace giving up and the list goes on. Now we stand in front of a newly renovated, cash flowing 3 unit property that we originally bought for 340k and now refinanced for 715,000!!! Despite the budget overruns, the headaches, and the “what the hell did we get ourselves into” self-talk conversations, we still managed to turn this property into a real winner. 

The property now has a 3 bedroom unit and 2-1 bedroom units with enough parking in the backyard. Literally everything has been updated in this property with no stone was left unturned. 

We are happy, our partners are happy and the tenants are happy. What more can you ask for? And of course we do love our partners. We are already in the process of finding our next deal to do together! Give us a call if you have ever thought about investing in real estate!

What’s behind the walls

I’m sure many of you would agree that we would like nothing more than for every project to go exactly as planned. Unfortunately in this business we often can’t see whats behind the walls, and what kind of issues we may be faced with.

The signs of a good investor and project manager is not only in how we can foresee plausible issues, but how we deal with those issues when we are faced with them.

Here are a few of the issues we have faced in our latest project!

Happy Real Estate Investing!
