I caught the real estate bug years ago before the bubble popped during the 2008 financial crisis.
Back then you could make a killing in the south selling homes near the ocean, regardless of the citys being in flood plains or adjacent to interstate highways.
But when the economy fell apart, multiple of us had to get smart about our jobs plus take on different jobs to make ends meet. I finally started working as a real estate consultant for our friend’s development dealer. Once the housing market started to reclaim, I dipped our toes back in slowly by purchasing a loft that I knew I could flip with little investments on our part. My sibling is a carpenter plus handyman so I hire him at his normal rates to help with interior renovations if they’re ever needed. However, I was trained by a landscaping artist years ago when I was finally working directly for a big landscaping dealer. They did everything from commercial plus residential landscaping to vinyl, PVC, plus chain link fence replacement. With this knowledge under our belt, it isn’t difficult for myself and others to transform the yard into a loft that I’m trying to flip. I throw down sod, clean out weeds from seasoned flower beds, root some new plants, plus choosing a fencing material to install. For the sake of simplicity, I like to use PVC fencing. It looks really nice from the road, it’s easier for myself and others to install without help from another person, plus it’s occasionally cheaper than other options. Since it already comeswhite, you never have to paint it in the first place or even repaint it in the future.
