NOTE: Larry also contributed a large amount of labor to remodel the property, estimated in value at about $30,000. So, if he had paid a 3rd party to do all of the work he’d have about $91,000 total cost.  But with that contribution of sweat equity, his cost is $61,000.

Remodel Details for Larry Deal:

  • Hired the painting, roof, siding, and some other help in these figures.  New appliances, supply side plumbing, hot water heater, re-wired the  whole house (house had 200 amp service), full bath remodel, we saved some drywall and the kitchen cabinets.
  • Some supplies were repurposed from Handyman jobs (recycled, garage door, toilet, plywood, lumber), shopped for returns on the appliances ($350 Each for the washer and dryer, $200 for dishwasher, full warranty out of the box at Lowes).
  • I estimate that my labor would be valued at around $30,000.  Put this property on the market (basically a brand new home) on December 26th, rented and occupied by January 1 for $1000 per month.
