David enjoying an evening by the Inter Coastal Water Ways in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Most of our properties are rentals and are located in the Winter Haven, FL area.. They tend to be centrally located and close to a lake. There are approximately 50 lake in Winter Haven, FL., so there is water every where. It is a Winter - Haven. Hence the name Winter Haven, FL. We also have some vacant land, well I do, Munir is not big into vacant land these days.
We use a property management company to handle most our properties in Winter Haven, FL.Our leases are generally for a 1 year term, we consider all offers but let the PM handle that. Nothing less than 3 months though! It also depends on the property in question? Some bylaws do not allow a short term lease.
We are pet friendly as a rule, again, it depends on the bylaws. But the pet must pass our own pet test. With Home Owner Insurance companies checking to see if you are renting to people with aggressive breeds. I actually had to sign a form saying the tenant did not have an aggressive breed. Hmmm, a 10 year old blonde lab. I don't think that is an aggressive breed. We like to know how the pet acts around people? If it is a dog, is it a barker? And the size of the pet? We like 20lbs or less. As we know people may fudge a 1/2 pound or so on their pets weight. Wink, wink.

Lake Howard House - This is our top luxury rental. When someone rents this beauty, they do not want to leave it. And we are not ready to sell our pride and joy. It is a single story, concrete block, 1894 sq ft 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house located on Historic Lake Howard.
It has a 2 car garage and plenty of driveway parking. There is a huge fenced in back yard that is great for children or pets. This wonderful home was made for a family. The New Lake Howard Trail is being built right now and will be a walking / biking path around the lake.
Casa Del Sol Townhouse - This is a great two story 1344 sq ft townhouse that sits off of Lake Hartridge. It has 3 bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. There is a nice private court yard out front and two screened patios off the back side and it has a two car garage with a little work shop area in it There is a little laundry room off the kitchen.
This complex has two pools. One is for adults and one is for children. The large one is for children and sits off of Lake Hartridge. There is a large clubhouse that can be rented out as well. The screened in patio on the bottom floor and the screened in patio off of the Master Bedroom, look out onto the court yard and the Adult Pool.
Lake Buckeye Condominiums - This is a nice clean 2 bedroom - 2 bathroom - 1100 sq ft condo located within the Lake Buckeye Condominiums community. The condo's are located off Lake Buckeye, a private lake and are off NE 11th St.
This condo is very close to Polk State College and Lake Elbert. It is centrally located on the NE side of town. There is a beautiful pool down by the lake and a nice smaller clubhouse. It is a quite community and well maintained. The concrete block buildings were built to last.
Garden Lake Dr Condo in Winterset - This beautiful 2-2 condo is located within the gated community of Winterset. It is about 2 minutes from Legoland by car. It is also about a 5 minute drive from State Farm Corporate Office. And Winteret has several of their employees living here. There is an amazing water view from this bottom floor, corner unit, 1000 sq ft condo. Sit out on your screened in patio and enjoy the view of the lake. It is so peaceful.
There are some nice bass that live in that little lake. Then on the lake Winterset side, you have the community swimming pool with its amazing views of lake Winterset. One of Winter Haven's premier lakes!!! This is one of the nicer affordable communities in Winter Haven and it is gated for extra security.
The Oaks - The Oaks A Condominium is a cute recent purchase. It is a 807 sq ft., 2-1 condo right off of Lake Howard. It has a great view of Lake Howard from many places inside the condo. Living room, kitchen, Master Bedroom and the screened patio. I really like the Lake Howard area and how centrally located it is to everything! Most things you will need are within walking or biking distance.
The New Upgraded Down Town Winter Haven is about a 10 minute walk. And this condo is right off of 6th street or US 17. Very close to the Historic Subdivision of Interlaken. Take a nice stroll through the neighborhood or take a walk or bike around the new Lake Howard Trail being built. This is our most affordable property!!!
Ave J NW - Ave J NW is the newest addition to the collection. This one is owned by McBrayer Investment Trust LLC. A new company was formed by David so he could get financing on some of the investment properties. Like this one. Ave J NW is close to a few of our properties and close to Lake Howard and the New Walking/Biking Path that goes partially around Lake Howard. They are just about to complete it.
Now one of the differences in this property is a General Contractor was hired to handle the rehab since David can't handle it with his limitations. So Scott Shelton of Shelton Construction is handling the job which will entail a new flat roof, new soffit, new AC system, remodeled bathroom, tree removal and trimming, restoring the Terrazzo flooring, plumbing and electrical work, painting inside and out and a new fence. Yes, it is quite a project. But the house was bought at a good price, it is in a neighborhood that is coming back around and is close to everything.
One more thing. There is a shop out back and a couple of sheds. One metal shed right beside the shop and one 6'x8' concrete block shed. A nice little storage shed that was built with the house. The house was built in 1963. The previous owner had partially fixed up the inside and was living in there. It has it's own service pole and meter box. But the water is on the main house. I want to see about getting a new water meter but on it if I can. But it must get and address and so on.
We hope to have this baby ready to rent around the first of September to the middle of it. But the windows will be installed a month or two later. They are on order and being built. They were the ones we wanted. We could have gone cheaper but this was David's one big upgrade. You don't generally put these windows in rental units. Not if you want to save money on your rehab. But they are nice. CW Custom Windows. A white Vinyl Double Pane Low E with Argon Gas. 2 cups of virgin vinyl in each window. A nice warranty that can be transferred one time.
