Pimp My Foreclosure: HUD Drives a Hard Bargain

It's a done deal, HUD accepted the offer.

I had to pay $300.00 dollars instead of the listed $200.00 for this one. Next step is fill out the appropriate paperwork and send the EMD and close.

After I close, I will be calling LOWES' Millwork and Flooring departments to get bids on the installation of windows and carpet for bedrooms.

Until July 17th, Lowes is offering basic installation on each window for $99.00.

I will be looking at Pella's vinyl Thermastar windows in the single hung with valance grids at the top. They will be filled with argon gas and have Pella's Sun Defense Low-E coating so the windows meet the federal energy tax credit.

For carpet, Lowes installs carpeting in the whole house for $139.00

I will be getting bids on electrical, plumbing and new shingles on the roof.

The type of carpet? To be decided. The carpeting will wait until work is done on the inside. But the windows can be done so that siding, sheet rock and painting can be completed.

Meanwhile I will be waiting on the news on a new addition.
