We are located in East York, Toronto in this video.

Jeff Reed is the owner of this property and has finally decided to sell it after 3 years.  He bought it originally for $300,000 and now has sold it for $644,000.

Jeff is an experienced house flipper in Toronto’s East End.  He’s been doing this for over 20 years and over the last few years Jeff has held on to a his properties because they end up cash flowing so well.  Nevertheless, it was time for him to sell this one.  Watch this video to see what Jeff did to renovate this property and to attract such HIGH rents and how he was able to increase the value of the home by $344,000 in just 3 years.
