Better Shelter

Flipping King Better Shelter Does It Again

Known for quality craftsmanship, modern finishes, and flea market chic staging, flipping team Better Shelter appears to have done it again, this time in the coveted Franklin Hills area of Los Feliz. Usually their homes sell for at or above asking price in a matter of days, and this one appears to be no different. I visited the broker open house today, and the property was buzzing with activity. It just hit the MLS today, and according to the listing agent, they have already received two offers on the property! Amazing. After purchasing the "fixer" home in May of last year for just over $351,000, Better Shelter has completely redone the entire property with all new flooring, kitchen, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, and a new two car garage. In short it is a brand new house at a good price. On an over 7,000 sq. ft lot, the developer has definitely added a ton of value to the home, and some buyer will be getting a beautifully redone property in a fine neighborhood. They are accepting offers until Sunday, so there is still time, but be prepared to go over asking price I am guessing. It just may be worth it.

Kudos on another fine project guys.

New Better Shelter Remodel in Highland Park

Everyone's favorite flipping team, Better Shelter, has just unveiled their newest remodel to hit the market in Highland Park. This is a growing area, and this home is close to all the new goods and services on York blvd. The home itself has undergone the classic Better Shelter remodel with their typical mix of rich dark hardwood flooring, an open floor plan, and updated bathrooms. The kitchen has been nicely redone with butcher block counters and a deep farm sink. The living room has 14' soaring vaulted ceilings, which is a huge plus for me personally. The backyard has been redone as well with drought resistant landscaping. There are great mountain views from the upstairs loft bedroom. Once completed, they also put their classic and stylish staging furniture in it, which goes a long way in showing the buyer how one could live in it and makes the home look fresh and cool. Another job well done, that is sure to sell quickly.

Flipping Team Better Shelter Does it Again

Current Home

If you have yet to hear of Better Shelter, then you are missing out on one of the great current "flippers" in the market today. They have flipped countless homes with their tried and true formula for vintage homes meets modern upgrades, usually in identical materials. Most of their homes have been found on the eastside in gentrifying neighborhoods like Mt. Washington, Highland Park, & Eagle Rock. This one is, I believe, their first venture into Silver Lake. Lying in a great Silver Lake hills location with views, but close to the popular Sunset Junction area, this property was purchased in January of 2010 for $250,000. At the time the home was 692 sq ft 2 bed/1 bath, and now it has been completely redone and expanded into the stunning property it is today. Listed for just two days, the property is already under contract and in escrow. This is a business and blueprint that is great for the buyer, the neighborhood, and of course Better Shelter's bottom line. That's the way to do it gentlemen, keep up the great work.
