Sometimes it’s hard to update on projects when they are in limbo. That’s what’s going on with a few of our projects.
The house has been rented for a while, but we were having trouble convincing renters that the casita is a great place to live. Suddenly we had two applicants! We are hoping the one with the great credit history signs the lease today or tomorrow. They will love it. I loved it.

We discovered we need to replace the roof. Luckily it’s hail damage, so insurance covers it. We have the house under contract and scheduled to close next week, but have to figure out how to handle the roof replacement. Keep us in your thoughts. This one should be just fine!
The lovely old home generated a lot of interest as soon as it went on the market. We are under contract now, plus there are other interested parties if this one doesn’t work out. At least one of our projects sold quickly!
We have generated a lot of interest with our Facebook ad. While it didn’t generate any offers so far, a lot of people have shared the ad with friends, and we made a contact with a real estate agent in San Antonio who went over to look at it, and discovered someone had locked the lockbox in the house. That makes it quite hard to show. Ugh. The agent fixed the problem, and he seems like a good guy who knows the area and the type of house we want to work on. We may work with him in the future. That’s a win.
Well, that’s not going well at all. This gives me many, many second thoughts, not surprisingly. One is that I wish we had done a more extensive renovation, but then we might not have been able to make a profit. We plan to re-paint the red trim, since it seems to be an issue. If we get one of the other houses to finally close, we’ll consider repainting the interior. I am going to advocate for also paying someone to fix the things the previous contractor left un-fixed.
We’re working on the contract with one of our contractors to get this one going. He plans to start today, so we’re kicking butt out in Round Rock!
Well, you live and learn, right?
