Flipping My First Investment House: The Adventure Begins


old kitchen in flip house

After too many years of watching the various “Flip or Flop” HGTV shows, I’ve finally taken the plunge  – with a group of other investors –and am flipping my own investment house — it’s exciting and scary at the same time! The property is a 1300 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath cape cod in Dumont, NJ. Demo started yesterday, and work should be going on for probably close to 3 months (thanks, holidays!)  Here are photos of the kitchen and baths as they were yesterday, before demo.

I will update the (slow) progress in this blog, and detail where items are purchased and their cost. Fingers crossed this flip works out, but I know it will be an educational experience at the very least!
