    love it. u kept all of the stuff in the bath.. that’s the way to do it!

    great job, j!

    Thanks George!

    Yup, didn’t touch the bathroom (other than replacing the toilet, replacing the light fixture and painting)…it was in good shape, and ultimately wouldn’t have changed the buyers decision to buy the house. No reason to spend money just to spend it…

  3. This place looks great! The new flooring in the bedrooms makes a big difference, and the kitchen is beautiful. Nice work!

    Great job on the mud room/office. I remember that was a concern of yours early on and I think you made the best of an odd room.

  5. Ethan says:

    Is that a concrete floor in the basement, or is there some type of carpet on top? Can’t quite tell in the picture, because it looks so clean and flawless. Did you pour it or was it like that when you purchased?

  6. J Scott says:

    Hey Ethan,

    That’s the concrete. We just painted it grey and it looks great!

    I am a licensed realtor (since 2009) hoping to get into the flipping business. I found your website by doing a web search for a business plan. I am finishing up my business degree and for my business development class, I had to do a business plan. I just ordered your books and am so excited to read them.

    Thanks Kristi…and congratulations on getting started! Let me know if there’s anything I can be of assistance with…

    very nice staging
    Just wondering where you pick up the picture in the mud-room ?
    ( frame with trees in background with sun raising -> behind the office desk )

    Hi Ramon,

    We used a staging company for this one, so all the furniture and art is theirs. Unfortunately I don’t know where any of it came from. Sorry!

    Hello mr. Scott, i`ve noticed that you use a project manager for your rehabs, i want to use a GC for my rehabs he is very hands on and does most of the work with his crew, can you give me some insight on if you think this is a good thing to do and why? or why not? And i also was wondering why on house #31 you used a different style of windows.

  12. J Scott says:

    Hi Kareem,

    I’m a big fan of using a GC in certain circumstances (needs permits, only rehab part time, new to the business, etc). In fact, I talk a lot about this in my book.

    As for House #31, we didn’t replace the windows in that house, which is why they’re different — they are original to the house…

  13. kareem says:

    Mr. scott i am so confused can you please help, i want to hire a GC to handle my rehab from beginning to end because i wanna be able to look for more deals and work a full time job, do you think this is a good idea or should i hire the GC and buy my own finishing materials, he is a GC that does everything except major electrical and plumbing and he does great work.

  14. J Scott says:


    I’m a big fan of using a GC when you don’t have the time to be at the house all day yourself.

    I talk a lot about this in my book:

    The picture in the mud room was purchased from a ‘Starving Artist’ sale. However, I am pretty sure that I have seen the same one at Kirklands.

    Hay Jay,

    I know on BP you have commented about vinyl plank floors before. Is that what you used on this project? We are thinking about installing about 1,500 SF of it in a duplex soon. Curious what your buyer/renters impressions have been and how they hold up.

    Thank you for all you give back.

    Locus –

    I’ve actually never used vinyl plank floors. I use solid oak for higher-end projects (including this one) and vinyl sheets for lower-end projects.
