Busy Day

Today was a busy day for us.

       I started off the morning by going over to our rehab on Hartford Terrace. Our contractor is just finishing up and he was looking for a final punch list. The Hartford Terrace house is a large 4 bed 1.5 bath colonial that is just over 2,200 square feet. We picked this house up via a short sale. Here are some of the photos I took today.

 Here is the view looking into the kitchen from the dining room. We opened this wall up and added the breakfast bar.

This is the main living room. It is very large and open. This house has alot of great wood work.

This is the full bath located on the second floor. This was a complete gut. We added new tub, tile, vanity, lighting and shower panel.

 Here is a close up of the Shower Panel. It is a big hit with buyers (especially the women). It is european stlyle complete with rain shower head and body sprays. It looks very “space age”.

 

 

 

The hardwood floors will be refinished at this house on Friday, then it is ready to be cleaned, staged and put on the market!!  I will post some before and after photos when I get a chance.
We are still waiting to close on the Fire Damage Cape. There is a lien on the house that the sellers attorney has yet to clear up.  In the mean time we met one of our plumbers over there today to do a walk through and get his numbers. I will be lining up a whole slew of contractors to take through there over the next couple days, a few of which came from my Craigslist search I posted about yesterday. So far I’ve heard back from four of them… two seem very promising.
We had lunch at the new Golden Corral that just opened up in Springfield… the food is real good. I ate way too much, it’s 11:00 oclock at night and I’m still stuffed from lunch!!!
After lunch it was off to a small REIA Group that meets in Southwick. It was a pretty good turnout and I got a chance to do some good networking.
Now it’s about midnight and I’ve got to get ready for bed…
