Investment diary

This was the very first property we purchased. Overall it’s been a good investment with great equity gains due to the scope of work. Initially we had only estimated a $20,000 rehab cost for the property. It quickly became obvious that to truly get to a good condition would need to be sided (It had original asbestos shingles) and old wood-pane windows. This was a good example of why you need to have extra cash onhand to fix things ‘Just in case’. Property was purchased in July 2013, rehab was completed around Feb 2014 with a tenant in the house the following month.
