This project was an off-market property in San Antonio. The seller had lived at the home his entire life and was ready to sell. Macario went to the showing, liked what he saw and bid on the property. Even though he bid over the asking price, someone bid even higher than that and he lost the property. At least the first time…
For unknown reasons, the winning bidder eventually backed out of the deal (which happens more times than many inexperienced investors think). This allowed Macario to purchase the home.
He repaired, restored and rehabilitated the entire house on 317 Mason. Because it was an old home, he had plenty of work to accomplish. But because it was just outside the historic district and therefore wasn’t listed as a historic property, Macario could do just about anything he wanted to within code. That included installing a pink door “to give it a little more personality”.
The property was purchased for $181,300, the estimated CMA was $315,000, he invested $100,000 to make repairs and updates, and it was on the market for just 27 days before selling for $378,300.
