The thing about HGTV is, they make home “flipping” look so easy. Pick a house, change out the counters, toss some cute hardware on the doors, mow the grass and BOOM! you’ve made $100k profit in 2 weeks! Yeah, right. Anyone that has dipped their toes into home remodeling and renovations knows that doesn’t even scratch the surface. Home renovations are HARD and when you have money tied up in the remodel, the situation can go from precarious to financially dangerous fast.
That being said, with greater risk often comes greater reward. Real estate is one of the best investments you can make (in general). Real estate prices historically rise, with dips in prices being short lived. Real estate is permanent. Land doesn’t go anywhere and is limited. They may be able to print more cash or harvest more bitcoin, but no one is printing or harvesting new land.
Hi there, I’m Juli Schumann and I’m the broker/founder of Sound City Realty. I have been remodeling, flipping, and investing in real estate for over a quarter of a century. I made it through the Great Recession. I took risks. I made mistakes. I’ve, as they say, “been there, done that, got the t-shirt.” I know the Nashville market like the back of my hand and know property values, costs of materials, and how much you should pay for labor. My extensive arts background (yes, I’m that arts person that holds pottery camps for kids and invites women to come drink wine while they paint out their frustrations), ensures all of my projects are aesthetically pleasing and styled to attract a wide range of tastes.
In a nutshell, I know how to navigate the renovations process. I can help you pick the house to flip, know what to offer, help you estimate costs to repair, help you find contractors, the whole kit and caboodle. I love to share my knowledge and help my investor clients make good decisions that will ensure them a successful project. The best results come from when we put our collective heads together and dream big. I wouldn’t be where I am today without help, and I can bet you would say you wouldn’t either. Help me help you make your next project a success by calling me today.
