College Park Foreclosure Home In Central Florida Remodeled To Perfection (CLICK HERE)

July 19, 2010 by · 2 Comments 

Check out the transformation on our College Park foreclosure that we purchased from the bank (REO). This former 2 bedroom, one bath and 1182sqft will be transformed into a 4 bedroom, 3bath and 2275sqft. We will do this by building out the attic space and adding a master suite with bonus room over top. Our budget for this project is $80,000 and we purchased this property for $84,500. Once complete we will be marketing this property for $325,000. Mid-Florida Investment Properties is a wholesale company that supplies real estate at a huge discount to investors. Our company is also in the rehab business. We believe that to wholesale properties to must be active in rehabbing as well. We believe in what we do and our rehabs speak for themselves. There are many wholesale companies out there that do not rehab or have never rehabbed a property. We feel to sell wholesale properties you have to have a better understanding of what you sell. What better way than to actually particapate in what you sell. Our company has the construction know how by doing and the real estate back ground from selling hundreds of properties over the last 10 years. For more info on how to buy and sell real estate you can contact us here.

Upstairs access 

 Here is the old access opening to the upstairs. There were no stairs and we had to create a staircase to get access.

 We had to bring the stairs in from another direction.

 We had to do a platform and turn the stairs toward the dining room. This actual gave the house more character and worked out in our favor.

This back wall will be removed. The window on the far left will become a door leading into the existing structure. The far two windows on the right will be closed off and the third window from the right will become a door leading into the master bathroom. The existing bathroom to the home was a decent size bathroom so we used it as the master bath and built a new guest bath in one of the bedrooms. 

7192010 004 (2)


Here we cut two new doors through the exterior wall of the house. The old entrance to the master bath has been closed off  and a new one created. Now the master bedroom has access to the master bath. The other door connects the new addition to the existing home.

 Here you can see the bonus room before we cut a hall into the existing roof. Soon we will have our access to the new master suite that will be tied into the old attic. The upstairs will then have a bedroom, bathroom and bonus/bedroom. We also created storage closets all over.
