I Bought a House for $36k

Yes, that’s right and guess what it wasn’t a short sale or a foreclosure! Pasco County’s Port Richey has some great deals right now. We shopped them all and decided that we wanted a 2 bedroom 2 bath home with a garage for investment purposes. So we started out shopping all the short sales and bank owned property and then turned to the traditional listings. And, those short sales were not the best properties or in the end, the best deals. Many of the bank owned properties were sinkhole homes or had some settlement damage. And, while you can buy those properties even less than $36,000 they are a big risk and will always have a blemish on their reputation. The short sales and foreclosure properties were a mess. Even though it is our plan to remodel this home one thing we really liked about it was that it was not destroyed. Who says you can’t find a killer deal in Tampa Real Estate these days? Check out Pasco County Homes for the best deals.

Here’s some pictures of the “before” version. We will post the “after” pictures as soon as we have them. But, for now it’s off to Lowe’s and Home Depot for some paint!
