Davidson agent Matt Roberts bridges passion for home improvement with real estate success

July 18, 2018

 | 

After Matt Roberts renovated his home in 2012, he realized he was hooked. It wasn’t long before Matt recognized that home buyers and sellers could benefit from his passion for renovation.

 

When Matt and his wife bought and renovated their Jacksonville Beach home, he was working as an automotive service advisor. Matt completed his first project and immediately set out to learn more, teaming up with business partner and Someday Homes CEO Branden Adams. Matt studied the ins and outs of renovating homes so he could take on his next project.

 

“I quickly learned that I enjoyed doing renovations and working on houses more than I liked my full-time job. We started working on friends’ primary homes and rental properties that they wanted upgraded or had problems with,” said Matt, who was putting in 16-hour days between work and renovating.

 

After friends began asking him about the real estate side, Matt decided to take his hobby to the next level and earned his real estate license in 2016. He joined the team at Davidson Realty and launched his new full-time career, helping customers to buy and sell primary and investment properties.

 

Matt’s most recent renovation is located at 2858 Loran Drive West in Jacksonville, near University Boulevard West. Said Matt, “The location of this particular home is what first caught my eye. Once I got inside, saw the layout and potential for what it could look like, I was sold.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Matt credits valuable partners like Adams and friend Ryan Wetherhold with helping him manage the renovation process, including planning and budgeting, design, vendor coordination and construction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Loran Drive is Matt’s third total renovation. He listed the home on June 13 and had multiple offers on the first day. The home was under contract the next day.

 

Matt now looks forward to taking on his next project.

 

Said Matt, “Starting out on the renovation side helped me understand homes from the inside out.” He said this enables him to pass along insights to buyers on potential issues and upgrade costs, as well as recommend trusted service providers.

Jacksonville was recently dubbed as the best city for real estate investing in 2018. The ranking was determined by home improvement company Renoviso, which based its list primarily on two important factors: affordability and growth.

Specifically, a city’s affordability can be found using the area’s median home price and number of high-paying jobs available. A city’s growth is based on population increases and job market. Other factors considered in the ranking included rate of return on investment (capitalization rate) and potential supply and demand of rentals. Read more
