The new construction process is always fun because you literally get to watch magic happen as you experience first hand an idea from your head actually manifest itself right before your very eyes!
Last year we began planning the construction of this unit and it’s exhilarating to drive up to the site and hear nails guns firing off every few seconds! Take a look at some of the in proces
2 weeks in and things are progressing along pretty good; in fact, the framers have only worked (1) full day and we were able to get the subfloor installed and framed most of the entire first floor! Not too shabby!
Do you own a vacant lot and would like to build on it but don’t know what steps to take? We can help you easily navigate the sometimes complex world of having a home or small multi family property built! You can speak directly with the owner of HVH by emailing him at Tyron@HoustonVintageHomes.com
We are excited to begin construction of this lovely duplex ideal for those looking to house hack or add a small multi family property to their portfolio! This home features (2) units consisting of 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms spaciously laid out over 1,125 square feet situated on a full size in-fill lot in a rapidly gentrifying area of Houston close the Astrodome area and Medical Center!
House-hacking is one of the savviest ways to purchase a home as it allows for others to contribute to your costs of ownership. You can live in one of your units and rent the other unit. Depending on a few key variables you could literally have enough income coming in from your rented unit to cover the entire monthly mortgage, in fact, with the proper management structure in place you could potentially have passive income coming in over and above your mortgage on a monthly basis!
YES, you read that right… You could actually purchase or build a small multi-family that would actually PAY YOU every single month from the income generated from renting your other unit(s) out.
An added kicker to the house-hacking concept is the proliferation of short term rental platforms like AirBNB and VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner) – these sites allow you to easily rent out rooms or your entire unit on a short term basis which is substantially more profitable than having a conventional long term tenant. In fact, we’ve seen many cases where short term rentals were 3-4 times more profitable!
Here are a few more images of what this particular duplex will look like once completed:
Pretty neat pad right? Unfortunately this one is already SOLD however we have multiple lots available in different gentrifying areas of inner city Houston where these type of properties will thrive and mesh with the overall aesthetics of the neighborhood!
