comingsoon Live Oak – Coming Soon.

comingsoon Hot Wells – Coming Soon.

lafayette-ave Alamo Heights (sold July ’13) – This is a new home we built built in Alamo Heights. We found the property for sale in the MLS and were lucky it was still available. There was an eye-sore of a house on the property, so the city approved our plans to demolish and rebuild. We wanted to build something consistent with the homes in the area, so we built this modern craftsman home. It is 3005 SQFT with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. It went under contract the first weekend it was for sale!

morningside Terrell Hills (investor closed June ’13) – This property caught our eye right when it was listed in the MLS. It has great curb appeal and is in a great area. We attempted to purchase it, but were not able to get it under contract. We brought another investor over and he was not able to make it work for him either. We kept an eye on the house and a few weeks later, the realtor contacted us and asked if our previous offer was still on the table. We had since moved on, but we were able to get the house sold by contacting another of our investors and helping him purchase the home.

argyle Alamo Heights (investor closed May ’13) – This property had been listed in the MLS for quite some time and the price had finally dropped to where it was worth going to see it. The house was built in 1924 by Scrivner, who is famous in that area. Upon seeing the house, we knew it had great potential. Unfortunately, the timing was not good for us to undertake this scale of a project. So, we called another investor to come see the property. Within the next few days, we had helped him get it under contract. During the contract period we assisted him with talking to the city about permitting and putting together the plans to renovate the property to its fullest potential. He closed on it near the end of May and we can’t wait to see how it turns out!

northridge Northridge (sold May ’13) – We purchased this property in Northridge from an estate sale. The unique thing about the transaction was that the house had a reverse mortgage. The heirs were happy that we were able to pay off the balance and put a sizable amount of money into the estate. The property’s location in the Alamo Heights School district makes it very desirable for homeowners and investors. An investor approached us about buying the property and we were able sell the property in a short amount of time.

montclair-2 Alamo Heights (sold March ’13) – This cottage home located in Alamo Heights was built in 1939. It was in need of a complete renovation and had an awkward floor plan. The home was stripped down to the studs and completely re-built with a new master bedroom and bath added-on. The final product is an 1812 SQFT home with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a detached carport, and a beautiful cedar deck. It took a very long time to complete the project, but we were very pleased with the results and it took only 20 days to get under contract.

challedon NEISD (sold February ’13) – This home in the North East Independent School District was purchased from an owner trying to avoid a foreclosure. We contacted the bank and paid-off the existing loan balance. We sold this quickly to a local investor who was looking for a property in the district.

bryker-drive Terrell Hills (Sold Jan ’13) – We purchased this traditional style home in Terrell Hills from an estate sale. The homes in this area can be very valuable, but this one needed foundation repair. Once this was done, a complete master suite was added on – bringing the house up about 2700SQFT with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. The kitchen remodel included new custom inset cabinets, honed granite counters, stainless appliances, and new fixtures. The rest of the house was updated with new paint, flooring, light fixtures, and remodeled bathrooms.

Claywell Alamo Heights (Sold Dec ’11) – This property was purchased from an investor who was in a tough spot and needed to unload some of his portfolio. The home needed many repairs, so we made sure to negotiate a price to compensate for the amount of time and effort required to rehab this project. We decided to list the property for sale as an investor grade property and it sold for a small, but quick margin.

Mahncke Park (click photo for gallery, Sold May ’11) – This is a new home we built in Mahncke Park, an up and coming area just near the Witte Museum. It is 1874 SQFT with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The house that was previously on the property had been built in 1938 and was in bad shape. We originally intended to completely re-build it. However, once we stripped the house to the frame, we saw it was in too poor of a condition to rebuild. The costs were much more than we had budgeted, but fortunately, we were able to sell the house for a price that worked for us and the new owners.

florida Lavaca (sold May ’11) – This property was built in 1930 and is located downtown in the Lavaca Historic District. We purchased it through a bankruptcy trustee’s sale. The property was in very poor condition, but we got it for a great price. Instead of fixing the house up, we contacted some other investors and sold it for a quick profit.

Final Front Elevation

Alamo Heights (click photo for gallerey, sold March ’11) – This property was built in 1904, it’s just over 100 years old! It was a duplex that hadn’t been lived in for many years. The place needed a lot of work, but we loved its potential and Arts & Crafts style. The house was stripped to the frame and completely rebuilt as a single family home with an additional 543 SQFT and a detached carport. The final product is 1924 SQFT with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Although everything was updated, the interior style remains true to its time period with custom alder wood cabinets, tons of trimwork, white oak wood floors, and a limestone fireplace.

Windcrest (sold March ’11) – This house was built in 1971 and is located on a clean, quiet cul-de-sac in Windcrest. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and was purchased from an owner who could not keep up with all the deferred maintenance. We completely gutted the kitchen and both baths. New cabinets, granite counters, and appliances were installed in the kitchen. The baths were renovated with new tile, tubs, and poured marble counters. Other updates included painting, tile & carpet flooring, and light fixtures.

mandalay Olmos Park Terrace (sold Sept ’10) – This stone bungalow located in Olmos Park Terrace was built by H.C. Thorman in 1949. Thorman was a famous developer in San Antonio; homes he built are very sought after. We purchased the home from an estate and were very excited to start working on it. We ended getting a cash offer for the house before we started remodeling. These buyers wanted to fix the house up for themselves. This would have been a great project, but we were happy to sell it to the new owner.

Terrell Heights (click photo for gallery, sold May ’10) – This 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage home in Terrell Heights was purchased from an estate near the end of 2009. The original owner had still lived there, so it was pretty dated. We painted the inside, installed granite, bought new appliances, and did some other cosmetic updating. The exterior was lacking curb appeal, so we re-built the front porch and added a gable over it to make the house much easier on the eyes. We also put on a new roof.

121 Five Oaks Northwood (sold May ’10) – This 2626 SQFT home in Northwood was purchased from an estate. It was built in 1954 and has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a 2 car garage. The house was in great shape when we bought it. To get it ready for resale, we had some options: do only minor repairs, do a major overhaul, or do something in between. This would have been a really cool house to do a major overhaul on, but we decided the best business decision was to do only the minor repairs. This allowed us to put the house on the market quickly and to price it under market value.

stoneshire Wood Glen (sold Jan ’10) – This 3 bedroom, 1 bath house in Wood Glen was purchased from an investor. It needed a lot of work. The foundation was repaired, the roof was replaced, new windows were installed, and a new a/c was put in. Then we put in a new kitchen, new bath, painted the house, and installed laminate flooring.
