I started getting into the real estate business after seeing that there was a chance that I could make some decent money from buying old houses and fixing them up. My most recent home purchase and sale was a home that was kind of run down, but I was able to make the improvements to it to get it great shape. The walls were painted, carpeting was added, and the bathrooms were renovated. I even called a local shower doors company to install shower doors to give the bathrooms a more upscale look. This was in addition to putting in new bathroom tile, adding a fan to vent air outward, and even adding a new toilet.
Once the home was made into a shape to be sold for a profit, part of me wanted to keep the home for myself as a second home. It was close to my own home, and there was something about the redone bathroom that really appealed to me. I think it might have been the shower doors and the new toilet. If I got a new shower door for my own home, I would probably feel the same way about that bathroom. The sliding glass doors in my shower came with the house and they look nice, but the ones in the renovated home have a better appeal.
There are a couple of houses that I have been looking at buying in order to fix them up and sell them. They’re not as in bad shape as the last home was before I fixed it up, but they do need a bit of work before they’re ready to hit the market again. The companies that I hire for my renovation jobs all love it when I call them because it means more business for them.
