Check out this affordable transformation! I’ll provide her tips below. She makes a great point about not overdoing a rehab. Go based off the recent sales in the neighborhood. Often times, doing the “extras” in rehabs (like adding a backsplash or replacing perfect condition cabinets) aren’t going to increase the value, rather decrease your ROI. Explanation from rehabber with some great tips:

A couple notes for you rehabbers out there: .
1) We could have gone plain jane and kept the oak cabinets; the neighborhood is still coming around. 🏡 Instead, I choose to keep the existing flooring (16x16 travertine-look ceramic on a diagonal lay), work the overall pallete up from that, and have the cabs professionally refinished. Choose your battles based on output and ROI. .
2) Material sourcing - this is how I'm able to often put a more designer spin on lower price point flips; I source the living bajesus out of my materials and fixtures and find incredible discounts on new or like new items. 💰 Same with appliances. If you're so inclined, take the time to hunt deals online and also locally through apps like OfferUp, LetGo, etc.
3) We moved an interior wall, re ducted the return from the kitchen to the living room, gutted the bathrooms to the studs and updated some plumbing and electrical. I still have my own subs for many things, but *make sure you work with a qualified, knowledgeable GC, HVAC/plumber/electrician, roofer*. Don't skimp or get your "cousins buddys homie" to renovate or update big ticket items, guys. Seriously.
Thoughts?! Questions?! .
Hope you dig it, Insta fam! We're on to the next! 🤘🏚🏠
