Originally, it was listed for $75,300. After an estimated ARV of $250,000, this single-family home in Atlanta, GA sold for $298,000 on Oct 21, 2016, after only one day listing on the market.

Take it from the pros: our Q&A session with an Atlanta real estate investor. Scott H. Williams, president and CEO of of Gateway Construction Company is the investor behind this profitable house flip.  We asked him about his experience investing in a New Western property. 1) What drew you to this property? Was there something in particular you saw in it that you liked? “I really liked the older homes in the area and this property in particular had a solid structure. I knew that it needed quite a bit of work that needed to be done to it but I saw the potential. 
 Last, but not least, my New Western Agent, Gordon Tran, educated me on the area and its closeness to the Atlanta Beltline. After doing some brief research I saw that the properties in the area were trending upward very quickly. Turned out to be a great find and investment.” 2) Did you enjoy working with New Western? Why?  “I absolutely enjoyed working with New Western and Gordon in particular. I did not feel pressured in any way, I felt that the New Western representatives were honest and not just trying to just get a sale from me. Lastly I really appreciated the research, comps, and sell history that they provide in their project summary information that they send out on each property.”  3) What was the most difficult part of this rehab? “The most difficult part of this rehab was clearly the ‘unknown’. Whenever you have a one-hundred-year-old house and open up the walls or the floor system, you never know what you’re going to find. We had the even out lots of uneven floors, we have to reframe damaged stud walls, roof joist, floor joist, etc. Some of the existing framing was not up to code so we had a lot of extras and surprises that we did not plan for.” 4) What was the best part of this rehab? “Seeing an old non-functioning structure come to life and beautify the community, and, of course, the smile on the new homeowners’ face when they moved in their freshly rehabbed home!” 5) Were you pleased with your ROI?  “Yes, this was a very profitable investment. Both financially and networking wise, as many doors were opened by having a presence in the community.” 6) What would you say to other investors who are considering property rehabs of their own? “Find a niche area where you want to be and work it.” 7) What was the total renovation cost? “In the neighborhood of $115,000.00.”   8) What are some of the rehabs and updates you made to the property? “All new roof including re-framing roof joist, rearranging the floor plan to accommodate a four-bedroom and three full bathhouses, re-framing floor joist and subfloor; opening walls to have a huge kitchen with interior columns, vaulted family room, huge master suite with his and hers walk-in closets, all new mechanicals, hardwood floors, designer tile in bathrooms, oversized kids’ bedrooms upstairs, large deck in back of the house, fenced backyard, upgraded trim package, and 10 ft ceilings throughout the house.” 9) What do you foresee to be the next trend, or next “big thing”, for property rehabs or property investment in general?  “Actually, I expect more of the same for the next couple of years. It’s a seller’s market due to the low amount of inventory in the market place.” 10) Do you have any predictions for the housing market in Atlanta? Will there be more investors bringing their business to the area, and do you think it is a hot market?  “Atlanta is definitely a hot market and will continue to be so due to the number of people moving into the area daily. Housing has to keep up with the demand. I think the trend will continue to be a demand on in-town living due to the Atlanta traffic everyone wants to be closer in town.” This property is the only one we have available for Atlanta real estate investors.
