3969 Humphrey – Rehab almost complete

3969 Humphrey – Rehab almost complete

It’s been a little over two months since I last posted about my ongoing rehab project, but I am happy to say that it will be done in less than two weeks. Trim work is about halfway complete so it will mostly be odds and ends from here on out.

At this point the roof, electric, plumbing, rear siding, HVAC, hardwoods, tile, kitchen cabinets, doors and windows are all complete. Baseboard trim should be finished up by Saturday so that finish caulking and painting can be completed. Other than that, here is the work that remains:

  • Carpets
  • Appliances
  • Concrete counters
  • Remaining bathroom fixtures
  • Landscaping
  • Painting the basement
  • All those fun little odds and ends

In addition to the subcontractors, I will be at the house all weekend trying to finish up the outside. We are getting very close though and should be able to start cleaning up by the end of next weekend. Just in time to get the place under contract and close before the $8,000 homebuyer credit potentially expires. Since we upped the scale of the work at the place, and because the market is supporting it, the asking price will be $134,900 when it goes live. If you know anyone looking for a place, be sure to give them a heads up.

I plan on having an open house when the project is complete so expect details on that and final pics and a walkthrough video very soon. In the meantime, check out the current pics.
