The Arthur ave flip was one of the dirtiest homes we have bought. We stripped this house down to the studs, re-wired, re-plumbed, new AC and duct work, new windows and complete remodel. The exterior we changed the brick to a lime washed look, the front porch was made bigger and we changed the elevation.

Our Village View flip was one of our more challenging floor plans. This home had walls everywhere including what was once a converted atrium into a bizarre room of lattice. We opened the whole living area into one open space. We converted one of the many halls into a large walk in closet for the master. The master bath was changed up to allow more space for a double sink vanity and walk in shower. This flip went very smooth from start to finish. We were on the market for about a week selling and sold this flip for $332,500. That is $7500 over what we original wanted when we first purchased this flip.

Here is our Thunder trail flip that we did the summer of 2015. We did a major face lift on the front of this ugly mid-century modern home. We used the existing lines and feel of the original plan on the interior. The main changes on the inside was the drop ceilings everywhere that is common with a flat roof. We removed all the boxes used for the AC duct work in the living areas and ran them on the inside wall of the bedrooms to help conceal them. We also built a drop ceiling for the AC ducts over the kitchen bar top. This helped get air to the kitchen, living and dining. We hung lights from the drop ceiling and made it the same size as bar top in the kitchen. This created an illusion that the drop ceiling was meant to be there. The front of the home we created a stained wood wall to match the wood grain garage door. The rest of the home was cosmetic repairs.

How SunRail is Affecting Orlando Real Estate

September 17, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

SunRail is a relatively new addition to Orlando’s transportation scene, a little over a year old. To date, it connects Volusia and Orange Counties through Downtown Orlando. It is expected to expand to Poinciana in Osceola County and north up to DeLand. Here’s how the train has affected Orlando’s housing scene.

Convenience is key

The addition of the commuter rail to Orlando has increased housing around the rail’s train stations. SunRail has appeal for people working all along the track, not just in Downtown Orlando. Residents love the convenience of having a commuter track near their homes. This helps to forego some of Orlando’s unforgiving traffic and the cost and maintenance of having to drive a car to work on a daily basis.

Keeping commuters in mind

Another lure for Orlando residents to choose to live near the train is the fact that developers are capitalizing on the empty spaces near the train stops, and are starting to build shopping centers and other amenities that would intrigue the everyday commuter, such as coffee shops and commuter parking lots.

Why Buyers are Choosing Lake Nona

September 14, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Lake Nona is a thriving master planned community located in the city of Orlando. It is located right next to Orlando International Airport. You will find apartments, homes, parks, schools, and research centers. There are tons of restaurants and shops located within the town. The best part of Lake Nona is that it is still growing, making it a great choice for buyers to settle down.

Lake Nona’s central location makes it easily accessible by all other parts of the city. And if you think about it, it’s pretty accessible to the rest of the world as well, because of its proximity to Orlando International Airport. No paying for expensive cabs or car services since the airport is located right next to this all-inclusive Orlando neighborhood.

There are tons of educational opportunities located within this bustling neighborhood. It is home to a Medical City, the University of Central Florida’s College of Medicine, and the University of Florida Research and Academic Center. In addition, you will find Valencia College, Primose School, Lake Nona’s Middle and High Schools. And located on the southeast side of town, is Veteran’s Memorial, found right next to the VA Medical Center.

What to Know Before Flipping Homes

September 11, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Flipping homes is no easy feat. Before getting started, you should know, at the very least, three main things: your budget, your time frame, and all about the location that you’re buying in.

Your budget

Being realistic about what you can afford when flipping homes is key when getting started. That should narrow down your options to what falls within your budget. It’s not only the cost of the house itself and the flip, it’s all the other expenses that come along with it.

The expenses that you put into the house aren’t your only things to consider. Real estate agents, insurance, and lawyers are also among the many things that cost money in this endeavor, so make sure to factor them into your budget.

Try to get an idea of what the contractor or handyman that you choose to work with, will charge. If you don’t discuss with him beforehand, you may get slammed with a pretty big bill depending on the job. Sometimes there needs to be more work done than meets the eye, so having a guy to work with that you trust can be helpful. He will probably want to keep you in good graces, especially if you’ll be hiring him for other house flipping work in the future.

Betty St Flip (Colonialtown)

Here is one of our latest flips in Colonialtown. This was originally a 3 bedroom and 1 bathroom home with outdoor laundry area. We changed the floor plan on this home making the living room and master larger. We also added a bath to the master and created indoor laundry area. In order to make indoor laundry we had to use part of the garage, so we built out the front of the garage. In the before and after you can see the changes to front. This 1333 sqft home recently sold for $257,000, that is $192 per sqft. This property was on our wholesale list at 135k and we had an ARV of 225k. We were told by several investors that we would never get 225k. This property was on the market 22 days.

Here is another brand new home that will be on the market by Feb 10th. We received our permit to build on Nov 1st and started the next day. Prior to getting our permit to build we had to get a permit to demolish home. This took about 3weeks from the time we applied for permit  to the time home was demolished. Our time to build is right around 100 days on this project. It wasn’t easy considering we had Thanksgiving, Christmas and New years. I will update with recent pictures soon as we are much further along than what is shown below. This home has 4 bedrooms, three bathrooms and 2250 heated sqft. The retail price on this home is 399k.

Here is our latest new construction project located in  the Colonial town area of Orlando. This home took under 120 days from start to finish.

The main home was rebuilt from it’s original 1100 sqft to a brand new 1530 sqft home. The main house has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The guest house has  1 bedroom, 1 bathroom and 560 sqft. This property is currently listed at $349,900.

Here is another downtown property rehabbed and pending in 4 days. This home was purchased at $150,000 and sold for $349,900. The rehab included turning this 2 bed room and 1 bath home into a 3 bed room, 2 1/2 bath home. This home had attic space with very low ceilings, so we tore out the drop ceiling, added spray foam insulation and raised ceiling. This gave the attic high ceilings and helped define the lines of the home. Now their is bonus space, lot’s of storage, a nice sized bedroom and a full bath. This 2110 sqft home was re-framed downstairs to open up floor plan and increase master size. We also created a master bathroom and a half bath for guests.

Here is an update on one of our latest investment properties that we are flipping down town Orlando. This home is located in the historic district so it has been a slow process of getting things approved and inspected. This home was 1100sqft when we bought it and we tore an old addition off the back. The new addition is over 1200sqft bringing the new square footage to over 2200sqft.

1400 Twin Oaks Circle, Oviedo Fl 32765

May 1, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Here is our latest flip to close. We bought this home in Oviedo for 145k and sold in just over 90 days for 300k. We had a buyer a month before we finished rehab, another flip without needing the MLS. This home also appraised at 312k. I had a few buyers that I tried to wholesale this to tell me that 280k is the max ARV. Not only did appraise for a lot more, it was also a easy home to sell. We had several people want the home after we had it under contract.
