We renovated a $47,000 house in a short sale real estate deal back in 2009, and later flipped it for $85,000.
If you're thinking about buying a cheap house, I'm sharing our experience of the process and offering some advice and reality about all that's involved.
Before and After photos of the renovation shown throughout this video, so you can see the transformation.
Our goal was to find the cheapest property we could in a relatively safe neighborhood. This turned out to be a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom short sale for $47,900 in Florida. The 794 square foot bungalow-style house was built in the 1950s, and was only one block away from Tampa Bay.
My husband, James, did 95% of the work himself rather than hiring it out. There is a LOT of responsibility and costs that come with home ownership, so please go into it with your eyes wide open.
