Why not for beginners:
This house requires a lot of cosmetic work and tender loving care (TLC). After walking through it and watching the video, there's plenty that needs to be addressed, but nothing major.
As much as we can this house is more suitable for CASH purchase but do think it is possible to buy with a mortgage.
WARNING: the house is not clean and does not show well – 4 minutes walk-through video: https://youtu.be/2pIjHW-hVKk
What's exciting about this house

On the market for 100+ days

Doesn't show well – needs a lot of TLC – unappealing for homeowners

Good neighborhood/area with good schools

There is nothing in this price point in the area

Purchase + reno: ~$220k, ARV: ~$260k – aprox. $40k in equity
Extra upside potential: finished the basement to ass more official sq ft & bedroom + bath counts for increase in value and rent – can be done in the future.

This is a RANCH house, AKA an desirable floor plan, and has lots lots of character and attractive elements.

In the map below you will see the green dot representing this house and the red marks are all properties owned by other SDI clients in the immediate area.


The Plan
  1. Purchase (cash or mortgage) – aggressive offer of $175k (-$185k)
  2. Renovate – see video and more details – assume 1.5-2 months
  3. Lease for ~1850/mo
  4. If cash – refi use delayed financing.
  5. Projected cashflow after reno with 30% down is ~$4500/year (3X more we normally see)
What's Do we believe would be needed based on an initial walk-through
  • The good news:
    • Furnace was working well and seems to be new.
    • Windows looked newer.
    • We have not seen sign of foundation or floor cracks – inspection will reveal more.
  • What we anticipate will need to be done:
    • Some boards on siding may need attention.
    • There was some trash in the front and still in the garbage bins. 
    • Gutters needed some love. 
    • The front stoop needed some love too. 
    • Garage door needs to be painted
    • Paint entire house + garage
    • Wood floor repair
    • Replace the carpeted area with floor or new carpets
    • Roof – at the moment, we dont know what's the roof shape
    • Deep cleaning
