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 Walk Through

Walk though with me to see this Green Button Homes project that got started in the College area near SDSU. This great Spanish style duplex is getting rehabilitated from top to bottom. Everything will be new; plumbing, electrical, roof, windows, kitchens, baths, paint and landscaping. Of course we are keeping the architectural details and gently remodeling to match the time period. We are 4 weeks in and have another 2 weeks to get it rent ready.

Final Stretch on the Encinitas House Flip

Final Stretch on the Encinitas House Flip

According to Zillow, the Median Home Value in Encinitas is $918,200 and the Median Listing Price right now is over $1,397,000 with a real lack of entry level inventory! There is only 1 other Active SFR choice right now in the $700’s, 1 in the high $800’s, then 2 over $1.2m in my area. We are not exactly in the best selling season but the market is on fire this year.

Flipped houses sell at a premium because rarely does a buyer get to move in to a new home with every surface brand new and free from other peoples germs. Every surface usually has been changed or painted if a rehabber does a thorough job. Moving into a house that has been rehabbed or a flipped house in San Diego you can expect to get no pet stains, no smells, no kids piss around toilets, not even someone’s years of old food in the garbage disposal.

It’s a big luxury to know that nobody even used the toilet. Our project is All New and Germ-Free and will hit the market this Friday, stay tuned!

This was a very straight-forward remodel. We didn’t open any walls or change the floor plan around. I think I did a good job with spending the money in the right places. House flippers have a budget to work with, you don’t automatically get paid for everything you do to a project because there is a cap on the sales price. 

Making sure you get the best bang for your buck, and passing along a solid product for a homeowner to build on is always our goal. Flipped Houses in San Diego sell for a premium but if you have a fixer upper and need to sell your house in San Diego as-is, please give us a call.
