In early December of 2017, we purchased our first fix property with the intention of doing a great renovation and then turning around and selling it. Our hope was to design and create what would become someone’s new home, and that is exactly what happened.
The renovations took until late January 2018 to complete, which was right in line with what we had hoped; the end result was perhaps even better than we had originally imagined. We had a lot of great tradesmen who came out and did what they do best, in a timely and cost effective manner, without sacrificing quality. That really made the difference in the end product.
Once it was ready, we had immense interest immediately and went into our first Open House with several offers already in hand! We know this won’t always be the case with these types of projects so we were very grateful to be in that position. It was a great learning experience, a lot of hard work and ended with our buyer being thrilled with their new home!
Here are some before and after photos to show the transformation!
By removing the large wall with nooks, we were able to open the space to a much more desirable great room concept. Here is the removal before and after:
Here is the final product from two different angles:
The kitchen got fresh new cabinet faces, countertops & paint, which made it so light and bright:
The master bath was in need of a complete revamp:
The guest bath also got a full facelift:
As you can see, the difference was dramatic and the end result was modern, bright and move-in ready! We are excited to find another project in 2018; and we will, of course, be sharing the journey with all of you! If you know of any properties in need of some Walter Group TLC, let us know!!
