REO Rehabilitation in Southwest Ranches

Real-Estate-Owned (a.k.a. REO) properties and investment properties are often acquired after months and sometimes years of neglect, requiring proper REO rehabilitation to get the asset back on the market. REO luxury homes are no exception.

This REO rehabilitation project of a 10,000 sq ft home in Southwest Ranches required carpentry work for missing crown moldings, complete interior paint, installation of new light fixtures, pressure washing the roof and repairing then painting the driveway. Rausa Builders Corp’s goal was to refresh the property and give the new homeowners a blank canvas without breaking the REO budget.

Scaffolding was brought in to install crown molding, light fixtures and paint the ceilings which were over 20 ft. high in common areas and 12-15 ft. high in the bedrooms.

For the exterior, pressure washing the large roof, painting the driveway and garage floors gave the asset a more inviting feel.

Below are before & after photos of this simple yet large REO rehabilitation project:

Small Bathroom Remodel in Palmetto Bay

New Shower & Vanity

This small bathroom remodel was part of a complete interior remodel in Palmetto Bay. The original bathroom space was poorly divided, creating a cramped space. Rausa Builders Corp. removed unnecessary walls and relocated the vanity, shower and toilet to make better use of the small bathroom space.

The new shower features porcelain wall tile with a mosaic glass tile accent and a frameless sliding glass shower door. The vanity was replaced with a smaller floating vanity and relocated to the center of the bathroom.

The following photos show the original layout and the completed small bathroom remodel:

Open Kitchen Concept in Palmetto Bay

Completed kitchen with open concept design

Rausa Builders Corp. remodeled this kitchen to an open kitchen concept. The old kitchen had melamine cabinets, a tile countertop and 2 dividing walls (separating the kitchen, dining & living rooms). The new kitchen layout required removing those walls to unite the kitchen and living room into the open concept. Relocation of plumbing and electrical connections was also required to accommodate the location of the new appliances and lighting.

The homeowners decided on new Italian kitchen cabinets with wood grain base cabinets and high-gloss white wall cabinets. The cabinets were accented with a 3cm solid white Quartz countertop, a mosaic glass backsplash and a stainless steel toe kick (bottom part of cabinet). A Blanco® Under-mount Sink was installed with a Delta® Touch Faucet.

The lighting was an important factor in bringing together this open kitchen concept. The interior lighting upgrade included recessed light fixtures and under cabinet lighting. Increased natural lighting was also part of the equation and this was improved by replacing a solid exterior door with a French Door and Side-Light.

Floating Vanity & Master Bathroom Remodel

Double floating vanity with quartz countertop & porcelain wall planks

The owners of this home in Miami Lakes wanted to remodel their master bathroom with a floating vanity and a frameless shower enclosure. Rausa Builders Corp. removed an interior wall separating the vanity area from the water closet (toilet & shower), converting the bathroom to a more open space.

We then installed porcelain & travertine tile on the bathroom walls and travertine tile on the floor. A double floating vanity (aka wall-mounted vanity) with a quartz countertop was installed over the porcelain plank wall tiles. The shower features a frameless glass enclosure, a modern linear drain, rain & hand shower heads.

Commercial Construction: Parking Lot

Completed new parking lot with new concrete curbs, stop signs and handicap signs

The owners of this plaza in Hialeah needed a general contractor with commercial construction experience after receiving numerous complaints from tenants and their clients about substantial flooding. The flooding was due to improper drainage in the parking lot from collapsed sewer lines. The issue was so bad that it began to affect business for the business owners in the plaza because customers were going elsewhere to avoid the nightmare of parking in the plaza.

After receiving the run-around from other contractors, the plaza owners contacted Rausa Builders Corp for their commercial construction needs and redo the entire parking lot. The cause of the drainage issue was collapsed underground sewer lines requiring replacement of all lines, catch basins & French drains. The project was spilt into 3 phases so customers always had a place to park during the construction process. As a result, the plaza owners, their tenants and their customers had ample parking with proper drainage, sprinklers for irrigation and required signage.
