Me with my new Toyota 4-Runner
Welcome to The Art of Home Renovations (TAOHR)!
And, I want to thank you for showing your interest in getting to know us! Hi I’m Kyle Gordon, the owner and operator of this business.
I was first introduced to house flipping and renovating some 30 years ago. My wife, mother, father, and I purchased, renovated, and flipped our first property. We purchased a small property in our area from a family estate. This was one of the first of many properties where the owners financed the purchase for us.
On multiple occasions we had the seller’s (usually an estate) financed the property for us, in fact one time I showed up at the loan closing. The seller wrote me a check for $2,200.00 for his part of the taxes. Imagine starting your renovation and flip where the seller gives you twenty-two hundred dollars to use, cool right? This works great when the property is owned by an estate, and needs so much work that banks and mortgage companies wont loan any money due to the properties condition.
My father, had always prided himself in making sure I was comfortable working with tools. In high school I had four years of woodworking shop classes. I had enjoyed working with power tools and building things. He was a carpenter and growing up I loved to work with him during my free time. We had done smaller projects like renovating our downstairs playroom, building shelves, and upgrading the kitchen cabinets. Renovating and flipping property became the next steps in the progression.
