Just signed a purchace contract ($2400 due on sale) for a '80 sommerset 2/2. Needs siding on MH, carpet, comp of drywall mud job, paint, broken tub fixed/replaced, plastic siding replaced, and roof sealed (small leak back bedroom closet).
This is in one of the best parks here in Colorado Springs with only one empty lot. It’s right out the north gate of the Air Force base. With Iraq deployment seems like many people moving…apartments have reduced rents by $100-150 monthly. Unknown risk of holding. Lot rent paid through September.
I’m refering to this as my college education on MH repairs. Estimate value at 13-16K (maybe more if market moving) when done.
List of projects in planned order.
Siding: best way to marry new siding with roof line? pull old to get under drip rail?? mount over old with a new drip edge?? will pull all windows and set inside, router openings and reset windows. Cost $600 with 2-3 days labor.
Roof seal: Has any one re-roofed with the colored metal seam lock and seen a $2k or so increase in their sale price? Concerned I’m getting close to max pricing but would have a new roof. planning to mop roof with sealer after siding unless new info makes seam lock a sure thing.
Tub in main bath, has tub drain in center on length: Options 1)pull everything and make a shower stall (about $300) or 2) Fix tub (is this possible?) with fiberglass and/or a portland mud base or 3) new tub kit (about $500). 1-2 days labor.
Dry wall mud over the walls and ceiling in LR/DR needs to be compleated down main hall. 5 gal bucket of mud and 1 inch roller. (i hate dry wall:-) 1/2 day labor
Plastic siding:Park says to replace any with holes (ha… that would be all of it except behind the porch). Will use salvage. 1-2 days labor?
Paint: inside and out 5 gal of eggshell or semi-gloss Ivory/off white- 2 gal of blue or green for trim. 2 days labor. 150$ for paint and supplys
Carpet:$650 for 100yrds installed. Light weight burber (sp?) no labor.
Wow… a lot in one post … would it be better to list each project seperately?
Thanks to all!!
