The First Flip

 The Berry House, before

The Berry House, before

Friends! I’ve done it. Together with an investment partner, I’ve purchased a home to renovate and resell. It’s a sweet old bungalow with water views in Pasadena, MD. Pasadena is north of Annapolis, south of Baltimore. Affectionately known as The ‘Dena, Pasadena is classic old-school Maryland. Lots of work trucks in driveways, older-style homes with house-proud owners. Oh: and in this particular neighborhood, there are also gorgeous views of wide, navigable Stoney Creek.

This is exactly the kind of project I’d been looking for: a truly distressed house with graceful bones, in an affordable but really special location. Sounds impossible, but this house is all those things.I mean, it’s my first flip and it has a water view? Wow.

We’re chronicling the renovation on our business site, and I invite you to join us for the ride!
