I know I’ve been starving you guys of flipping goodness for quite a while lately. I’ve been starving for it too! I haven’t really dug my hands into a construction project since Dori ended but I can FINALLY tell you that all is not quiet on the flip front. After almost 6 months of flip hunting, getting outbid more times than I kept track of, and a general lack of house inventory to even look at, we may actually have the next flip in the wings! (If you follow me on instagram/facebook this may not be new news)
It’s a short sale, so it’s not 100% locked in really until the day we get keys. We have an accepted offer although we still need bank approval for the short sale. Since short sales are a long, drawn out process, best case scenario we’ll have the keys sometime in October and we’re walking away if we haven’t closed by Thanksgiving. I’m trying not to get my hopes up in case it falls through, but how could I not- it’s an adorable house! Having time to wait will give me plenty of time to think about the best style and renovations for this little gem.
It’s got tons of character just waiting to be brought back to life!
I’m looking forward do doing some vintage-inspired spaces with a few funky elements thrown in. Here’s the direction I’m currently thinking for the house:
My dilemma (assuming all goes well and we get the house), and it has nothing to do with design: what should we name it?? You may have noticed that we name our flips and if you’ve been around a while, you know we name them usually something to do with the street they’re on. Clark St was naturally “Clark”, Franklin St was “Frankie”, a blue house on Grove St naturally became “Grover”, Midland St got nicknamed “Millie” by Hubby, and Dori got her name because the street name was the same name as the street my grandmother, Doris, lived at for over 50 years (albeit in another state). Hubby and I are a bit stumped as to what to call this house. It’s street name doesn’t lend itself easily to a specific name: it’s on Massachusetts Ave. I need your help!!
