It needs major updates – but it is a smaller property – so the updates should be reasonable.

Unknown Factors

1. Basement needs to be inspected by the inspector

2. Electrical has been updated – but furnace / AC needs to inspected as utilities have been turned off.

3. Roof condition is unknown and would require professional inspection.

2. Furnace (Optional): $1,500

3. Painting: $1,500

4. Carpet & Flooring: $1000

5. Flooring: $1,000

6. Kitchen Update: Stove plus cabinet repainting and repairs: $1,200

Savings can be achieved if roof is in acceptable condition, and also furnace.

ARV Estimate:

Comparable sales in this area – properties around 1,000 sq.ft are priced at around $50,000 to $60,000 range around this neighborhood, there was a house sold for $65,000 in this area reasonably. This property was sold for $57,400 back in 1999, and price had been climbing in this area to around 1999/2000 level.

As a conservative target – we believe the ARV will be around $55,000 range. Image1
