Flatulent House

Home » Blog » 34 Weeks Flipping Houses » Flatulent House

This is the ‘Flatulent’ house. Crude, I know. Named so because of the previous owner’s gastrointestinal issues while we were negotiating.

This one is in the process of being rehabbed and will be listed with our Realtor when completed.

Our new contractor has agreed to do the work below with materials, for $5,500. We still need to pay for carpeting throughout most of the house and some AC repair work and landscaping. Also, the new garage doors are not a part of this bid and will be extra. These additional costs will likely make up the difference in our budget for this house.

This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1700sf house that was built in 1981.
