Stellar view of rural pasture across to the mountains from the front of this property. This lovely flat acreage goes quite far back through the trees and is roughly 128 wide by 562 feet deep, with the pleasurable sound of a little brook audible when outside at the front. A long-term rental, the house is a project! it is spacious, feels solid, has an unusual feature inasmuch as there are steps inside at the front of the house AND at the back (easy access to the garage), has a metal roof, and is well situated on the property to allow agricultural type use of the land or the building of a carriage house, second dwelling, or shop. But it is being sold "as is" so you can refinish the interior in a way that pleases you. Bring your imagination and ideas and turn this into your next home!

How Much Does It Cost To Flip A House?
Flipping a house can be super exciting. But it can also be a major wallet drainer. Make sure you’re prepared for all the costs before you sign the paperwork on a fixer-upper by accounting for these expenses:

1. Purchase Price of Fix & Flip Property: This is the original sticker cost that you close on when you buy the property. But it’s just one part of the picture!

2. Cost to Rehab a House: This is where you’ll spend a big chunk of your budget, and it includes the fun cosmetic upgrades as well as any structural or systems upgrades the house needs. Make sure to plan for unexpected costs here because they’re sure to pop up.

3. Carrying Costs to Flip a House: You still have to pay the monthly taxes, utilities, and insurance even when you’re flipping a house.

4. Fix & Flip Marketing & Sales Costs: Flipping a house means that you plan to sell it after you remodel. So you have to factor in the costs associated with selling the home, including real estate agent commissions.

If you’re ready to get flipping, send me a message.   I have my eyes on several properties that would be just perfect to flip right now!

Avoid this Mistake when Purchasing a New Home
So you're buying a new home (or refinancing). Here's one tip that almost everyone needs to hear: once you have been approved for a mortgage, avoid making any major purchases or opening up a new line of credit. Even if you're opening that department store credit card to save 30%, it can impact your loan.

Once you've closed on your home, you can buy what you want, but until then, assume that any impact to your finances could prevent you from qualifying for the mortgage amount or rate you want.
