Finally after all my traveling we found a new investment property.
In a beautiful town called West Islip, New York my partner and I have found a small foreclosed home right on the Bay. It has docking space and is already over 3,000 square feet and we plan to add an extension and dormer by next year. Making our new vacation home over 4,000 square feet.
This is a beautiful area of Long Island and is close to many small villages that are incredible in the summer and not far from the ferry in Bay Shore that is a 15-20 minute ride right over to fire island. We plan on using this as our official get away for a least 3 months out of the summer. Of course when winter comes we will be on the road again traveling. We are considering renting it out during winter months. It will be fully renovated and furnished.
We finalized everything on the purchase of this home about 6 weeks ago and I could not wait to share this story. We already started having the bathrooms and kitchen remodeling started. It is going to be absolutely beautiful with granite countertops, real wood floors with a custom finish color. All hard wood doors and a beautiful stone fireplace.
Tables chairs, couches, beds, lighting fixtures, dressers and walk in closest will all be there year round. Our home extension and dormers Long Island company C&S. They are also in the kitchen and bathroom remodel phase. So far the project is going smooth and great. I cannot wait to share the before and after photos and sit by the bay and write some more blog posts.
We are also buying a 32″ sea ray boat. Very exciting and grateful. I have been browsing Amazon looking for great deals on accessories like coffee makers, pots and pans. There are some great buys out there and i suggest always looking online first before heading out to the local stores.
I bought a beautiful table for $200.00 less then the local furniture store wanted right online and they delivered it right to my door. I took some before shots and once the construction phase is over I will share them on a post. My good friends from C&S are working very hard and I wanted to shout them out and also share their new commercial video above.
Finding the right professional contractors that can help pull permits and proper structure by all the rules is not an easy task by any means especially when you are always traveling. I am very glad I know the A team :).
Well I have to head out for a few days but I will try to sneak in a quick blog if anything else exciting happens. Plane rides, road trips, and constantly changing my clothes from place to place has become a common thing for me lol. Think about it in California its sunny and warm then you leave and a few hours later I get off in Long Island and it was cool and cloudy. Never a dull moment but i would not trade it for the world.
