The Long Flip Reno
We had the pleasure to work with a home owner who bought a townhouse in the subburb of Ottawa, Canada called Kanata. A long flip is when you purchase a property and live in it with the sole purpose to flip by a future date. In this case we renovated the foyer, powder room, kitchen and basement. The basement was unfinished so it is being renovated from scratch. On the main floor we removed walls in the foyer and kitchen to give the home a more open concept. We modified the framing, installed new drywall , ceramic floors and kitchen cabinets complete with custom quartz counters. In the basement we framed out a rec room and 2pc bathroom, insulated, drywalled and trimmed out 4 new doors and baseboards. The owner plans to complete the renovation on his own installing new carpet in the basement and second floors as well as renovating the main bath and ensuite.

Update:

Our work on the long flip reno has come to an end. The owner has decided to complete the painting and other finishing touches such as lighting on his own to save money. Check out the pictures of the work we did complete. The basement was renovated from scratch. The new kitchen was created by opening up the walls to create an open concept. The cramped foyer was opened up to look bigger by removing the closet creating a more open feeling of space . The owner plans to flip this property at a future date. By doing these renovations he has added about $60,000 in added value to the home at a cost less than $40,000.

We wish him every success in his future flip and are sure he will do well. It is currently a sellers market in the Ottawa region where there is a huge need for housing inventory under $500,000 at this time. This flip is now in prime condition to do well in this market.
