Forum Title: First Flip - Second House
Hi All, A little background on myself, I am in my early 20s living in Ontario Canada. I purchased my first house at the end of 2017. The house is a semi, it came with an unfinished basement and a somewhat nice upstairs. I painted, blocked off the stairs for a stackable washer, cleaned up the kitchen and put a nice new fridge in ñ very minimal. 3 bed, 1 bath, kitchen, laundry and living room. In the basement with a separate entrance I built a 2 bed, 1 bath, kitchen, laundry and living space. All the work was done by myself except for a small amount of carpet and doors. Yesterday I purchased a similar house and it closes at the end of April. This one is pretty gross though, infested with roaches, but I bought it about $150k lower than market value. I plan on doing this one as a flip as I donít want to deal with tenants. This is a 4 bed, 2 bath, 4 level house including basement. (one bath is only a two piece but backs on to a large closet) Anyways, Iím looking for advise on what you all would put into it, minimal but effective. My thoughts are below: -All new plumbing fixtures & turn 2 piece bath into 3. All plumbing costs I can get covered, so this is a give.-New flooring, most likely a mix of vinyl plank and laminate in dry areas (all flooring in the place is shot, and basement flooring was wrecked by a leaky washing machine)-LED pots in all rooms except beds.-New baseboard, doors, casings & trim. -New kitchen upstairs & install a kitchen downstairs to make a second apartment (house has separate entrance).-Stainless appliances upstairs, basic appliances downstairs. All work is done by myself. NEXT POST WILL HAVE SOME PICTURES ñ THEY ARE GRAPHIC!
