I caught the real estate bug years ago before the bubble popped during the 2008 financial crisis.
Back then you could make a killing in the south selling homes near the ocean, regardless of the citys being in flood plains or adjacent to interstate highways.
But when the economy fell apart, most of us had to get smart about our work and take on unusual jobs to make ends meet. I started working particularly as a real estate consultant for my friend’s development supplier. Once the housing market started to salvage, I dipped my toes back in slowly by purchasing a home that I knew I could flip with little investments on my part. My brother is a carpenter and handyman so I hire him at his normal rates to help with interior renovations if they’re ever needed. However, I was trained by a landscaping artist years ago when I was particularly working directly for a large landscaping supplier. They did everything from commercial and residential landscaping to vinyl, PVC, and chain connect fence installation. With this expertise under my belt, it isn’t hard for me to transform the yard at a home that I’m trying to flip. I throw down sod, wipe out weeds from aged flower beds, root some new plants, and choose a fencing material to install. For the sake of simplicity, I prefer to use PVC fencing. It looks very nice from the road, and it’s easier for me to install separately without seeking help from another person. What’s more, it’s occasionally cheaper than other options. Since it already comes in white, you never have to paint it in the first locale or even repaint it in the future.
