Smokey House Rehab: The Finished Product!!!!!

Smokey House Rehab: The Finished Product!!!!!
After over a YEAR of procrastinating working on this house, I am happy to announce that it is finally FINISHED!!!!!!!  Between getting married and having a baby, this home rehab was really put on the back burner, but I'm so glad that it's complete and ready to be put on the market! It was quite a project, from all the trash we had to remove to the smoke damage t[...]

I know it's been a couple months since I posted an update on the Smokey House Rehab, but that's mainly because there's been nothing to update you about.  The rehab has been on the back burner because of all the wedding madness, and we've finally gotten back into it.  The last time we attempted to fix it up ourselves with no help from professionals, it was 100° outside[...]

Look how clean the freezer looks comp[...]

About 2 years ago, Steve and I bought a couple investment properties in Memphis, TN.  At the time, we thought it was a great investment.  I mean, where else can you buy a house for $30,000 and rehab it for only about $10,000 and then rent it out for a nice profit every month?  Well, it wasn't as easy as we thought.  First of all, finding decent tenants in Memphis is n[...]
