Hello all, I'm a noobie to the forum just looking for a place to log my progress and get some feedback along the way. I'm a 21 year old from Omaha, NE. I closed on my home in mid October, so I haven't had it for more than a month. The house I bought is actually the house I grew up in, parents sold it off about 3 years ago to move out where were are now (nicer neighborhood / nicer houses). Well, just like the current trend, the people who bought it didn't pay and faced foreclosure. I got it for less than half of what we sold it for and paid cash FTW. The deadbeats (or victims depending on your views) trashed it, but it's mostly cosmetic and on the inside, so I'll be gutting it and fixing it up with the intention of eventually flipping it. Will probably end up moving into it for a while with some roommates. It's a cute little thing , about 1100 sqft: Yard will clean up pretty well, and I'm going to be tearing down some walls on the inside to re-organize the living space to make it roomie friendly.
