UPDATE: Before and After

In July 2019 OHU50K featured this house when the asking price was $39,000. It sold in October 2019 for $31,000. Just shows you how the market has changed in two years. Instead of three months for something to sell, now it takes just three days.

 

Anyway, the house was rehabbed and flipped, selling for $210,000 on September 23, 2021.  Here is the Before and After. Before is at the top half of the page and After is at the bottom half. What are your thoughts?

OHU50K NOTES

This c.1906 handyman special in Sayre, Pennsylvania, hasn’t been butchered as many of the old houses under $50K that I pass by have been. At least this one has no cheap paneling, and the built-ins are still intact.

REALTOR COMMENTS

RPH is within walking distance of this large handyman special in Sayre Boro. The house needs work but has new sidewalks and many original features such as hardwood floors, bay windows, nice woodwork, original walk-in pantry and original door hardware. This house would make a great rental, flip or fix it up and move in.

    I personally loved the interior woodwork painted white. It made every room look clean & light.
    As for the exterior, not a fan of the gray color. I am sick to death of gray everything! It’s an ugly, drab, boring, depressing color! In my world the porch remodel would have classic posts & rails & painted white for sure. Other than that, good job!

    Look like a cross between Home Depot and Ikea! And as if that wasn’t enough damage, did they come in with a power hose and a truckload of white paint? They even painted over the fine woodwork!! Looks like the only things that survived were the floors. I guess it was cheaper to polyurethane them than to put down snap together flooring. A severe case of “what the market will bear”. At least I didn’t do it, so I can sleep soundly tonight!
