'Flipping Across America': Clint and Luke price renovated vintage house at $900,000, will they get a bid?
Colt and Luke have the tough task of transforming a triplex house into a family home. The 1915 home was built on 1300 square feet and cost them $310,000 to buy. To make a profit out of this house, Colt and Luke knew that they would have to spend some extra bucks to make sure that the house lived up to its expectations and still retained the vintage element that it had when it was first built.
As they entered the house, they were happy to find out that the house had a high roof and a fireplace that were sure to be the scene stealers. While there were some good elements present in the house, there were others that needed to be let go. One thing that Colt and Luke thought was missing from the house were big windows and some remodeling that was needed in the bathrooms.
They estimated that the remodeling would cost around $250,000. However, they soon realized they were wrong. Going through the house they noticed there were some burnt woods and found out that the house had been in a fire. To makes matters worse, looking at the condition they thought the house had endured two different fires. To make sure the same was not repeated, the boys decided to spend some extra money to ensure that everything in the house was safe and fit for people to move in. Without wasting much time, they quickly got to breaking the walls, fixing windows, choosing colors, tiles and an interior that best suited the house.
They also decided to give each room a different color in a bid to keep that aesthetic appeal intact. They wanted classic charm with mixed amenities. Colt and Luke also managed to create a sunroom in the house that allowed light to come in. After everything was done, the dup realized they spent $350,000 on the house, more than what they bought it for.
Despite this, they were sure that they would get a good price out of it as they listed the house for around $900,000. Luke and Colt managed to get a whopping offer of $895,000 out of the house and made a profit of $150,000.
'Flipping Across America' airs on Thursdays at 9 pm ET on HGTV.
