After I finished remodeling my first house, I bought a Dutch Colonial for $100 down. It required the usual repairs such as stripping wallpaper and painting; plus, I refinished its maple floors, installed a suspended ceiling, restored original woodwork and built a cabinet into wasted space that you see pictured here, among other profitable improvements.

Fortunately, I survived that process to be here today to say: don't listen to those naysayers who delight in sharing second-hand horror stories about refinishing wood floors. If you're patient and inherently brighter than a level above plant life, you can do it. Here is Part 2 of 5 of how to buy, fix-up and sell for profit.
