    Looks Great! I notice that there is no backsplash in the kitchen with granite countertops, do you always do it that way? If so, how do you make it work? When I put granite in the wall never seems to meet the countertop perfectly all the way around so we have to do a backsplash.

    Hey Josh,

    Good catch! šŸ™‚

    This is one of the finishing touches that hasn’t been done yet, but we really wanted to get the house on the market before the weekend, and the next two days are going to be pretty busy. The backsplash will go in this week, and I expect that with the holiday, buyers won’t be walking through until at least the weekend, at which point it should be done. Hopefully potential buyers are as observant of the pictures as you are… šŸ™‚

    Another great job!! What did you end up doing to fix the floor that had a gouge in it. I have a laminate floor in a rental that has a nasty spot, but since it was a rental have not worried about it to much. Also, great job on the pictures! They really look professional with the various angles. Did yall take a photography class? šŸ™‚

    Hey Stephanie,

    Our hardwood guy was able to take a section of wood out of one of the closets to replace the section with gouges. We then put vinyl flooring in the closet.

    My wife does all the picture taking…if you look through the four year of houses/pictures, you can really see the amazing progression!

    I have been following yall now for at least two years. The progression has been really amazing and I have learned so from the two of you and your blog/posts on Biggerpockets!! Yall are my hero šŸ™‚ Tips I have gotten from you and your wife have made/saved me lots of money! Thanks!

    Hey J
    I see you use track lighting in most of your kitchens and it lights up really well. Do you have the SKU for the light in this one?

  7. J Scott says:

    Hi Daniel,

    That’s a Home Depot fixture, SKU #987-423 (Hampton Bay).

    I notice that the appliances have gotten a lot fancier than back in the days of, e.g., the Poor House — is that because availability has changed, or are you rehabbing into a higher-end market these days?

  9. J Scott says:

    Hi ACM,

    We’ve been rehabbing higher-end houses the past year or so ($200K+ instead of $100K houses), so we’re going with slightly upgraded appliance packages. Interestingly, for the most part, the nicer appliances are only about $100 more expensive than the cheaper ones.
