Distressed Home Gets A Fresh Update

Tue, Nov 6, 2018

Memphis_Renovation_Turnkey_FlipThis Memphis, TN 'Turnkey Transformation' is a great before and after for this week! As you can tell, this property has encountered quite a bit of fire damage. Not only that, the landscaping had started to take over the sides and back yard. See even more pictures below to find out how this distressed, ignored home becomes a fresh new property perfect for investors and residents!

It's not at all uncommon for Memphis Invest to purchase somewhat distressed properties. If the home is in an area that fits our strict criteria and just has a lot of work to be done, that doesn't scare us away. After 15 years and over 5,000 properties, we're not surprised by too much these days! Fire-damaged homes come with a few different issues. There's definitely a 'fine-tooth comb' approach where all electrical, plumbing and structural items are thoroughly checked. And with this house in particular, we had to tear out and replace the old brick upstairs due to the extent of the damage. In fact, most of the upstairs in this home had to be completely redone because of the location of the fire.


This renovation took 164 days to complete, which is definitely a lot longer than most of our rehab projects. But as stated before, a thorough check of the property and all the necessary cosmetic and structural reconstruction will take that kind of time. With a $68,000 rehab budget, our project manager and vendors were able to make this property shine again!

After the repairs were made, we were able to sign a qualified resident with a 2 year lease THE SAME DAY the renovations completed. Not only that, the resident was already in place 3 weeks before the investor closed on the property (they closed yesterday, in fact!).
