Hey, it’s Cho, and I’m back with a super exciting announcement! Before I get to that, I have to remind you all to go check out my recent recap on the penultimate episode of Survivor. This has been one of the BEST seasons we’ve ever seen, and we are quickly approaching the finale! I would love to hear your opinions on who’s left, who should win and who you want to return from the Edge of Extinction.
Remember the chimney that fell on our house? Yes, that chimney. The neighbor’s chimney. The same chimney that caused a lot of damage on our property which we had to pay for. Why would we have to pay for our neighbor’s chimney falling on our property you might be wondering. According to our insurance company, it was because it was an “act of god”. Makes perfect sense, right? Last time I checked, god only pushed over chimneys that were already dilapidated and not taken care of, but what do I know?! Due to the gaping hole on the side of our house, we decided that would be a good time to expedite remodeling our third floor entertainment room.
Tour The New Property!
Due to good karma, the opportunity was presented to us to buy that same house. After wading through a lot of turmoil, confusion and drama, we decided to actually go ahead and buy! For those who don’t know, my partner Eric was already getting his feet wet in the real estate business before this purchase. Outside of the obvious potential for financial gain, we would also be able to ensure that our neighbor who owned the house previously was able to remain in the neighborhood. You see, we live in an area that is being slowly gentrified. Without going into too much detail, it was essential that this deal went through with the highest amount of ethics and moral code. While some didn’t adhere to these same principals, we’re proud of where things currently stand among all parties and the neighborhood!
Now the fun part! Go take a look at my video tour of the place as is. You can watch it on my youtube channel here. Be sure to leave a subscription to my channel! I was only able to show half of the duplex, because the previous owner is still living on the other side. We plan on doing some major overhauls to both sides and the outside, so definitely stay tuned for more updates! I’m interested in knowing all your thoughts about the bones of this old traditional home. There’s always so many unique things about an old house.
In the next post, we can start discussing some of the major projects currently happening. For now, I want to know what you all think about the duplex overall? Tell me how much you hate/love the carpet. Give us your opinions on how we can make it better for a future tenant. What about those light switches? I know y’all love Eric more than me, so I’ll have him replying to all your comments down below. And my auntie will be proud that I’ve actually been helping with some of the heavy duty work on the weekends! If you like what I do here on the site, be sure to support me in my other ventures elsewhere on the internet!
