Rehab Your New Home Without Lifting a Finger

Everyone has seen all of the hit TV shows that are all over now. They are fun to watch and it’s hard to turn the channel if you have watched more than 5 minutes. Now you are hanging on because you have to see what the house looks like when they get finished. You may have even been watching with your husband or wife and said “we need to do that” or “let’s buy a fixer upper for our next house”. Then, you start talking and realize that you don’t really have the experience or time to do something like that. That’s ok. You can still do this. You just need to call RAMS Investing at 317-883-RAMS and we will do this for you. If something like this would be of interest for you and you want to see some examples of things we have done, just poke around on the website. Since you are here now, look at this before and then the after video of one we just did and turned over to the new owners on Friday.

They were super excited, and when you see the transformations, you will know why.

 

Here is the video of the home before rehab.  Be sure to watch this first. [youtube]https://youtu.be/vWp30I4fG3U[/youtube]

East Side 4 bedroom

We just started rehab on this 2 bedroom house near 10th and Mitthoeffer on the east side.  It had major foundation issues that helped us get it at a steep discount.  We had to completely remove one wall of the basement foundation and replace it.  When replacing it, we were able to egress windows which allowed us to add two more additional bedrooms and a nice rec room in the basement in addition to adding a complete bathroom.  The house went from being a 2/1 with an unfinished basement to being a 4/2 with a fully finished basement.  The work has just begun so stay tuned for updates.  Here is what it started as…

Old Town Greenwood Double

We bought this double in Old Town Greenwood and are torn with what to do on it.  Our initial thought is to turn it in to a large single family house and sell it out right, but part of us wants to keep it as a double and hold it for cash flow.  Time will tell.  We have some immediate repairs on the exterior of the home to take care of and then we will make a decision on what to do on the interior.  Either way, it’s a good investment.

New Rehab in Old Town Greenwood

Here is a new project we just closed on this afternoon in Old Town Greenwood.  It is a 3 bed / 2 bath house in need of some TLC to bring it back to its former glory.  I don’t know that our contractors will say the same thing, but I am beginning to like these older rehabs.  Work will begin soon on this one so check it out and stay tuned for updates.

Broad Ripple English Tudor

We just bought this beautiful English Tudor home in the heart of Broad Ripple.  This house just oozes with charm and character that we plan to bring that out and emphasize it in our rehab.  It is in remarkably great shape for a 90 year old home that has sit vacant for several months.  Currently it is a 3 bedroom 1 bath home with an unfinished basement.  We discovered an extremely large attack that we intend to finish and create a new Master Suite with a loft and master bath.  Additionally, we will completely finish the basement to create another living area.  This one is going to be fun!  Check out the before photos and check in later to see the updates.

Perry Township Full Basement Home

This home in Perry Township that we just took possession of is filled with space.  Upstairs is a 3 bedroom 1 bath home and the full basement downstairs mirrors the upstairs with a small kitchen, full bath, living space and 3 other rooms that could be used as bedrooms.  With original hardwood floors and limestone exterior, this will be a great house for whomever is fortunate enough to get it.  The back yard is secluded with plenty of space to roam.  We are just starting to work on this one so take a look at the before pics and video and stay tuned for updates.

Cheap Center Grove House

Here is a house in Center Grove Schools that, when finished, will make a nice starter home, or an inexpensive home for a family.  It needs a new kitchen, new bathrooms, and a complete face lift inside and out.  There has been a raccoon living in the house so who knows what we’ll find in there.  Use your imagination!

Old Town Greenwood Rehab

Here is a house that we initially had as a lease to own. We leased it to a couple who ultimately decided that the copper in the house was worth more than their $2,500 deposit so they decided to rip it all out for us and scrap it out. (Real Nice Folks!) One police report, a court case and an insurance claim later and we decided to rehab it for a retail sale.  We added a second floor to the house to add a bedroom and a second bath.  Now, the house has updated wiring, new plumbing, new AC, new kitchen and baths and more.  Check out the before and after photos to see the big change.
