This is just a brain dump post.
I am having serious thoughts of getting back into house flipping again. Like serious enough that I have talked with the agent I worked with before selling my houses to get an opinion. Sort of kind of trying to talk myself out of it, but seem to be doing the opposite. John and I have been tire kicking at a new house for us a bit and seeing all of these potential flip candidates is driving me nuts.
I look at a picture like this and it gets me all excited.
I can just imagine the transformation! I see much potential in this room. There is still huge risk in flipping. It would mean still working my present job as much as I could while working on a flip as we can’t really go without my income during the fix up time. The financing is really the toughest aspect of flipping and I do not relish going into that quagmire. That’s really the only thing stopping me.
Here is another one I was drooling over.
This is *my* type of house. It’s old, from 1867. It’s got all that character – seriously, that arch doorway with the original wood? You can see underneath all that grime that it could be beautiful. Not to mention I bet there is hardwood under that carpet.
I am just thinking out loud here and don’t know if I actually will proceed forward, but I certainly have that bee in the bonnet again.
