6/19/2015 – Whirlwind

The last six months have been a whirlwind. Andy and I got married in December. Purchased a new house on New Years Eve, went on our honeymoon to Bora Bora, took on a full renovation of the new house from top to bottom and traveled all over with trips to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Hawaii, Colorado, Massachusetts, and Mexico both via Cabo San Lucas and Rocky Point. Plus, we are currently in Bermuda. We’ve had some amazing trips and we now have an amazing home. There is still a lot of work to do outside with the yard, garage, and landscaping but our hope is to be complete by Labor Day. In all of this time, flipping has still been in the works but our house really was almost all-consuming for me but when we get back from Bermuda, it will be flipping in full force again!

Currently in the works we’ve got Granada, Belleview, Claremont, Almeria, and of course the Hill House which always seems to be the project that gets put on pause. Belleview is a great little house in South Scottsdale. It’s definitely more of a cosmetic flip and I expect that one to be done first because it’s already had great progress. Granada has been busy for a while – It’s such an awesome house in the Willo District, but preserving all of the  awesome details inside has also proved to be a lot more time-consuming. Claremont has been fully demoed, and I’m working on the new floor plans for it while we are away. It’s in a great neighborhood where most of the homes have been remodeled… So we just need to bring this home up to speed. Almeria is another cosmetic flip, but it’s one that needs to wait a little until the others get further along and then it will come together very quickly. Once these are all complete, we’ll need to refocus on the Hill House. My goal is to get that house completed inside this year – The home specifically needs to have some additions done to it so it will take more time then the others but hopefully it will be worth it when it’s complete.

In the meantime, there have been some other interesting developments in the works. Flipping Diaries might become more than just a blog, the house in Palm Springs is under contract and should be closing soon, Happy Valley is still for sale but I just fully staged it and I’ve also got my two consulting gigs that I’ll be wrapping up with some great photos to share soon. In Phoenix it’s getting hot, already 116 degrees… But with all that heat, will come even better deals and flipping diaries!
