Real Estate prices have jumped in this complex, my exit price projection based on comparable sales was only $430,000 when I bought it. It’s on the market now and all redone for $499,000-$549,000 MLS# 220012628 and in the award winning Poway Unified School District. This is the second-best school district in the San Diego area and 14th best in California for those of you looking for good schools in San Diego. Listed with Atkin Homes. We had 6 showings yesterday and don’t see a problem getting what we want for this great townhome in Rancho Penasquitos. Stay tuned!
Our newly completed Allied Gardens bungalow is so cute! We are certainly loving the transformation on this house flipping project. This unique property with great elevation is located on a very private and quiet Allied Gardens street with surrounding views. The inviting front porch just makes you want to take a seat and relax after work while seeing your neighbors out and about walking their dogs. The vertical large house numbers and the horizontal porch rail design gives it a beachy coastal vibe. Just listed for $899,900 and now on the market. MLS# 220011058
The front door color is SW 7701 Cavern Clay. This is a play on a traditional red front door but modernized to fit our palette. Leaning more terra cotta, it has brown undertones and really went well with the existing brown roof. Keep in mind these real estate photos are shot in HDR. In person this color is not so orange.
My accent siding choice is SW 7046 Anonymous. It also is a greyish-brown to tie into the brown roof. This is my first time using this Sherwin Williams color on a house we bought to flip, I wanted something bold for this siding panel and it makes a great statement. Picking exterior house colors to go with a brown roof can be tricky, I am very happy with what we pulled off here.
We really made this floorplan work by opening up the wall and rearranging the kitchen layout with a small island, walking into this home you would never feel it is only just over 1000 square feet. The original kitchen had the sink in the corner under the window, this definitely wasn’t going to work so we moved it to the island along with the dishwasher as our only choice.
Tons of light comes in and makes this space feel very welcoming. I went lighter than we normally do also on the waterproof flooring material to make the space feel larger. Using a LVP material or waterproof flooring allows us to seamlessly run the flooring through the wet area being the kitchen. We even managed to squeeze in a pantry with the new configuration as well as leave a generous allowance of space for a dining room table.
We just wrapped up a really nice remodel here in San Diego down South near Mexico in Otay Mesa. This is a great entry level neighborhood and a good choice for military or anyone wanting to be close to the border or Imperial Beach without spending a million bucks. We listed at $769,900.
I am so happy with how it came out, we did everything new from the windows to the flooring. It’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath and the best part besides the awesome military neighbors is the direct access to the 7-acre Montgomery-Waller Community Park and Rec Center in the back yard. I kept the home design and colors very easy and safe.
The exterior stucco color is Sherwin Williams SW 6149 Relaxed Khaki. I love using this neutral color when we have an existing brown roof to work with. The trim outside is SW 7005 Pure White and the front door pop color is my favorite Behr 480F-4 Mermaid Net.
For the interior walls I have been using Sherwin Williams Drift Of Mist SW 9166. This is a great color but it can be tricky and show grey undertones depending on what kind of light you are getting in the rooms. If you have a sunny location it’s almost off-white with a hint of green. This property is a true winner, hurry before it is gone!

Look at this new purchase we just made down near the Mexico/USA border in Otay Mesa! This house was a long term rental with a lot of deferred maintenance although it is on a great street with really good neighbors. I had been in disussions with this homeowner for quite a while and then when COVID hit (they actually got sick) the plans to sell the house were put on hold.
I always personally follow up with the leads we get. When you sell to us you deal with me personally through the whole transaction. Hundreds of San Diego homeowners have sold to me personally over the years. I have more experience navigating through the sale process than most real state agents. We always use a local escrow company that handle the transactions for us. These sellers appreciated my non-pushy nature and we finally struck a deal and closed the sale within 2 weeks with the tenant in place. Selling a house usually requires cleaning and fixing things as well as getting it vacant. In this case I acquired the tenants with the house and worked with them in a legal and ethical manner to relocate. In the case of this property, we paid $40,000 more than a competitor that solicited them! With 15 years of local homebuying experience, we are the most trusted choice for an easy home sale in San Diego with no realtors involved getting commissions.
Stay tuned for the remodel on this one and we appreciate referrals and are always looking to buy more houses in San Diego.
No sooner did this hit the market than we got multiple offers and it is now SOLD to the new owner. We got $860,000 which was way more than anticipated in the sellers market we are experiencing in San Diego. This was a massive project that took 2 months to remodel. We hauled off 9 dumpsters of debris from the property during the job. This was one of the best lots at the end of a private culdesac and coming in at nearly 1/3 of an acre.
We opened up this kitchen to make the most of our space. Clean white Shaker cabinets and quartz counterops were used per our normal package. I love the open shelving area next to the fridge and the abundance of white subway tile gives a real timeless look that wont go out of style. Home design trends for 2022 have leaned a little more modern, but I hesitate to follow so as to appeal to most homebuyers. We buy a lot of houses FSBO, For Sale By Owner to remodel and resell.
We bought this property directly from an out-of-state landlord who was tired of the tenants and lack of timely rent payments. We paid cash and took it “as-is” and it took almost a year to get things turned around.
The colors for this project were:
Exterior Siding: James Hardi Evening Blue
*special note. The pics are shot in HDR and do not accurately reflect this true color which is way darker and more of a grey/blue.
Exterior Trim: SW Pure White
Interior Walls: SW Drift of Mist
Interior Trim: SW Snowbound
We wrapped up what turned out to be my favorite house flipping project in Serra Mesa. I’ve bought and remodeled probably 5-6 in this neighborhood, but this one came out to perfection! No faster did the home hit the market for sale over the Labor Day weekend than we got multiple offers and it is now in escrow sold to a new buyer. Thanks to everyone who helped and made this transformation come to life! Keep us in mind for any fixer-upper “as-is” homes, we are always looking for a house to buy and transform into something special!
