Serra Mesa Remodel Done!

Serra Mesa Remodel Done!

Just wrapped up this big Serra Mesa project to finish out the year. Couldn’t really be worse timing to put a house on the market in December but with all the new jobs in University City from the new Amazon Tech Headquarters, all surrounding areas are selling.

The open concept with big island kitchen really makes the house. We did the quartz counter tops again with a waterfall on the island for a dramatic touch. Matte black hardware and plumbing trim throughout looks very sharp and gives a good contrast to the white cabinetry.

Believe it or not beige and neutral paint colors are coming back. Combined with Navy Blue accents this is the new trend for 2020 in home design. I got so sick of seeing grey walls, glad to change it up.

San Diego Home Buyer

Getting started on a great house we just purchased in Serra Mesa, San Diego. It’s funny to say I am excited about this I know, the property has seen years of neglect and deferred maintenance but I have a vision and will enjoy creating this old rental house into a really nice home for a new family to enjoy for years to come!

We are throwing a complete remodel at this home. I bought it “as-is” directly from the out-of-state owner and helped him with relocating the long time tenants.

The first thing I did was remove all these nasty juniper trees so we can replace the entire roof with all new sheeting, rafter tails and facia. I take pride in doing things right.

We are projecting about 5 weeks to do this complete remodel. I do a really good job only using specialized sub contractors for each individual trade, no handyman tile jobs here! Stay tuned and we are always looking to buy houses in San Diego.

Homeowners sell to us and avoid the hassle, expense and uncertainty of listing with a realtor. With hundreds of F.S.B.O. (for sale by owner) transactions under our belt and 15 years experience, we are the most trusted San Diego home buyer.

Clairemont Remodel Hits the Market

Clairemont Remodel Hits the Market

We wrapped up the flip of this Clairemont house in San Diego last week and its on the market and ready for a new family! This is a really good and quiet street in Northwest Clairemont with easy freeway access to both the 52 and I-5. We completely transformed this property over the past few months after buying it from 2 siblings who inherited the property.

This was a great house but was just outdated and it needed repairs that would have prevented it from being sold to a retail buyer on a loan. Since we paid cash and bought it as-is, the sellers avoided paying real estate agent commissions. We even covered the closing costs. The whole team is really happy with the results!

We did complete cosmetic remodel including new paint in and out, kitchen, flooring, doors, and fixtures. The kitchen came out great with 2 tone Shaker style cabinets, and we did with dark grey on the lowers and white up top. Quartz counter tops everywhere will provide years of easy maintenance. Matching grey Shaker vanities in both bathrooms. For the back splash we tried the beveled white subway for the first time and it looks clean. My favorite parts are the cool front porch and the huge bonus room with fireplace on the back. 

New Clairemont Project and 2019 San Diego Market Update

New Clairemont Project and 2019 San Diego Market Update

2019 San Diego real estate market

The 2019 San Diego Real Estate market is warming up with the weather. After a brutal holiday season and price reductions of up to $50,000 in Clairemont,  we are finally seeing an improvement. We officially shifted to a buyers market in San Diego over the holidays. November and December inventory was up to 75 houses for sale in 92117. There was a real lack of buyers and agents were dropping prices everywhere. I seem to think some of this was caused by the interest rate increases last year.

 

Things are better now, the overpriced listings are gone, sellers are realistic now for the most part and inventory is down to 34 Active homes as of today! Here is an outdated house in Clairemont we just bought directly from the beneficiaries of a Trust. They sold directly to us and did not have to repair anything or pay real estate agents $40,000! If the house needs work and is going to sell at a discount anyway, why pay agents when a cash home buyer who flips houses like me is going to be your buyer anyway? 

 

The 2019 San Diego real estate market can sustain as long as we don’t see any more interest rate hikes. I hope the Fed learned their lesson last year. Prices have reached high unaffordability levels so we cannot raise rates now without impacting the market. I predict a shorter Spring selling season this year and then conditions could move back into a buyers market this summer as sales slow back down. Real Estate investors in San Diego should take caution and realize that we are entering an extended flat period where prices will not continue to keep going up at the previous pace. Many house flippers in San Diego lost money from purchases they made in 2018 when the market slowed down. We are not predicting a big crash but rather a small pull back followed by an extended flat period. Stay tuned for more updates on our new Clairemont project!

 

Modern Farmhouse Rough In

Modern Farmhouse Rough In

 

This big fully permitted Modern Farmhouse remodel in Oceanside is now well underway. We moved a lot of walls around and are doing major structural changes to convert this dated 5 bedroom, 3 bath into an open concept floor plan 4 bedroom, 2 bath with huge 9′ island kitchen and expansive master suite upstairs.

The style is “Modern Farmhouse” where we will run an all White and Black color theme with some industrial fixtures and gold hardware. Inside paint colors will also be all white with warm wood floors to anchor the space. Extensive use of subway tile and white shaker will complete the look, wait until you see the unique industrial pendant lights we are dropping over the island.

This is Part 1 which got us through the demo, permitting, rough framing, mechanical upgrades, central air, roof, insulation and drywall. Notice the awesome Shed Dormers I designed on the roof which gives it the Agrarian look we are going for.

This style is hot right now in LA and North County San Diego so it will be exciting to leave this mark on the hip South Oceanside neighborhood for years to come. Subscribe to our YouTube channel so you don’t miss the final video to see how it comes out!

Spanish Duplex Finished

Spanish Duplex Finished

Sell your house in San Diego? That is what the old owner of this run down duplex did. She is a CPA and held this as a long term rental, it just didn’t get the maintenance it needed over the years. We made it very easy and fair with a quick cash sale. The team just wrapped up this Super Cute Spanish Style Duplex remodel yesterday near SDSU. This was a total renovation from top to bottom with all new windows, stucco, roof, electrical, plumbing, paint, flooring, kitchens, baths, fencing and concrete.

I really love the big unit with the fireplace and coved ceilings. I stayed true to the Spanish Style architecture with the white interior paint and distressed darker hardwoods and then popped the cabinets grey to contrast the walls. White stucco outside was also a classic choice. Subway tile in the kitchens completed the look, very pleased with the end result. The obvious choice would have been white shaker cabinets but my supplier was out of stock so we went with grey but it looked great and enabled us to do all white walls so its easy to touch up being a rental property.

We buy a lot of houses in San Diego and remodel them. If you want to sell your house as-is for cash please contact us. We are the most experienced cash home buyer in town and have been purchasing fixer-uppers for 15 years. We can usually pay more than other “We Buy Houses” guys because we are licensed general contractors and do the work ourselves.  Thanks for all my sub contractors and team members who worked hard to bring this to the finish line!
