Flipping Grandview: Week 4 & 5

A new week, a new unexpected expense.  Upon further inspection, the water heater that we thought serviced the whole home did not.  The one that does is in need of repair.  Instead of waiting for it to flag on the future buyer’s inspection report, we will go ahead and replace it to ensure it’s up to code before construction is complete.  That will be an additional $1,000 bringing our unexpected total up to $1,500.

Our contractor did see some other unusual items and is going to get them repaired within the original bid which is great!  We are already over budget since we purchased all of the appliances, fixtures, lights, faucets, etc.  We know we will have some electrical work to do once the renovation is done as well so we are really trying to limit our costs.  The holding costs definitely add up quickly, too.  We are getting ready to make our first mortgage payment.

This week, we got the colors right and additional coats of paint on went on.  The progress is visible and that’s exciting.  The contractors believe they will be done around March 23 so our plan is to have the home on the market by the end of the month!

 

Flipping Grandview: Week 3

This week saw our first unexpected expense for additional tile work.  The bathtub didn’t come out as easily as the contractors had planned so we will have to get some matching tiles and install those so when we glaze them, they all look consistent!

They did get the tub out though and the new one in will be put in next week.  This week, after all the priming of last week, the walls saw their first bit of color and the trim got painted as well!  The cabinets are now primed too which is exciting! It’s exciting to see some tangible change!

Flipping Grandview: Week 2

This week saw some big items being taken care of like a new HVAC system, drywall prepped and repaired for paint, completing some detailed demo to prepare for the new look!
