Most of the work is complete on the Bathroom Hole House.  So far I have spent $56,644.35.  I have some outstanding bills, some work on the heater is needed, and fixture replacements are probably required.  I also expect to find some small problems as I inspect the house closer.  I expect to spend another $3000 and I will be in the house under $60,000.  When the house sales I will give exact numbers, including carry costs. 

I have listed it with a realtor for $149,900.  The appraisal (required by the bank) was $162,000 but both the realtor and I feel that was high.  I am offering a $2,000 credit for appliances.

I have posted before and after picture below.
I would appreciate your comments.  Please like, 1+, and re-Tweet this post.  Continue reading »
