That's a great looking home. Congrats. Would love to ask you questions about the investment process and bidding out work, fees, etc if you're open to that.

Some constructive criticism for you. That is a honestly a pretty crappy lot within the neighborhood and based on those pics that rehab is middle of the road. On a psf basis you are priced on par/above with some of the best historic renovations done in the neighborhood (by FW Heritage and few other groups). I think you are going to have a really tough time at at that price but I wish you all the best. Hopefully you guys aren't in the deal for more than 425k-450k. Also I would clean the dirt off the porch and retake those pics. Good luck!

I'll echo Stan's comments. Might be worth your time to do some landscaping in the front too. The inside is nice enough but the curb appeal is lacking.

Yeah 356/ft seems very high.

Here are some examples of rehabs in the First Ward that have been able to command that $/psf

I would assume the price is because the house is on a 5000 sq ft lot... but I don't see anything that shows off that lot. The front yard is a basic gravel driveway, the house is sub 2k in sq footage, so i would assume you have nearly 2k in sq ft in the back yard. That's your selling feature!

The ROC builders homes with a 2 car garage, 3bed /2.5 bath, engineered slab, 2300 sq ft living space in the same neighborhood are selling for 440k. They only come with a 300 sq ft yard in the back, so thats how you need to compete.

It is a 5,000 sf lot but it is in an especially ****ty location and driving by it today confirmed Diggity's comment that is has zero curb appeal. It needs some landscaping and and a front fence at minimum. But I agree with your comment that the pics/description should highlight the backyard space.

I'd spend money on a super private, high fence in the back. From what I can tell in the last pic it's still chain link.

I live a few streets away and that location would be a tough sell currently. The houses next to you aren't doing any favors. That little parcel of houses there always seems so exposed and out of place. Landscaping and fencing could do a lot.

Inside looks nice! And sawyer heights is a cool place... and will be a long term great investment for who ever boys it.

Absolutely agree on the fence in the front and I would add in a driveway gate.

Agreed on the lot. Big plus is having a chick fila in your front yard though.
