Real Estate Investing | Flipping | Venice FL

Today I toured a home for sale in Venice Gardens in Venice FL.  It was one of the best examples of house flipping I have seen in Venice in quite a while, and it's an excellent value for anyone looking for Venice FL real estate.

With the owner's and listing agent's permission, I'll share some photos of this property.


Venice Gardens is known for 2 bedroom/2 bath homes, with one car garages and concrete block construction.  This one had three good sized bedrooms and has nice curb appeal.


The kitchen is the first thing you see when you enter the home, and it makes quite the impression. The combination of the timeless white cabinets, contemporary cabinet pulls, subway tile back splash, and solid wood counter tops will appeal to today's home buyers and lends a touch of sophistication that won't go out of style.


Like the kitchen, both baths have contemporary sinks and faucets that look far better than a standard out of the box vanity from the DIY retailer.  The double vanity here is a nice surprise, and is a feature most of today's home buyers are looking for, especially when a lot of investors cut corners and choose a larger less expensive single bowl sink instead.


This home has an incredibly bright and inviting enclosed lanai.  The owners did the right thing by tiling the lanai in a tone on tone color scheme, instead of taking a cheaper short cut and staining the concrete slab.  Notice that the wall colors throughout the home are the same shade of gray, creating a feeling of lightness and space.  Gray is the new beige.


The homeowner renewed the existing terrazzo, of which I am a huge fan.  If you don't know about terrazzo, read more about it here on my blog.  One of the big home buyer trends, especially among first time buyers, is vintage items such as terrazzo floors and custom, original moldings.  Terrazzo, besides being highly durable, has no grout lines or patterns to distract the eye and makes the space look larger and lighter. It definitely works well in this home.

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with 1325 sq. ft. under air is currently for sale for $195,000.  Please take a look at the MLS report and contact me for a tour today.
