The borrowers found ABL through a Bigger Pockets meet-up. Structurally, the house was sound; there was no need for framing and there were no plumbing issues. They did have to to replace the roof, gutters, and siding, as well as repair the porch and sand and stain the deck. Additionally, they had to install brand new windows, lights, doors, hardwood floors on the first floor, and ceramic tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The borrowers modernized the space and used a cool, blue-grey color scheme that showed the open floor plan to its best advantage. After 91 days on the market, the property sold for $227,000 – $33,000 more than expected.
