Investment Property Part #6

Here they come…..

In mid-November we accepted December 1st renters which therefore put us in a scramble to get the house finished and furnished. Deadlines are good. They make us move faster. The project could likely still be going on if we hadn’t ramped up the pace in anticipation of our first guests.

We did it, down to the shampoo and conditioner.  Not all of what we had planned and ordered was able to be completed before Dec. 1. and despite the fact that our counter tops and kitchen tile were not yet available for installation, our Breezeway Cottage did shine for its first set of guests who were from a Michigan based IT company that had contract work in Kansas City for the month of December. We were thrilled.

It’s now the end of July and we couldn’t be more thrilled with having our furnished rental.  We are proud of all of the completed work and our guests have really enjoyed staying there.  In between rentals my husband and I still enjoy going to the house to get away and enjoy a glass of wine and a cigar in the quiet, cool, breezeway.  

With our second investment property now fully completed and leased, our eyes are subtly scouring this same darling neighborhood for another unique, quaint, affordable property to scoop up.  I’ll keep you posted.  

What am I working on now?  My next endeavor? Wine making. I’ll tell you all about it next week.
