This is the true example of how to properly restore a house. I saw it years ago, when the Sellers purchased it. The house had been with the same family for many years, and it showed. It was just... sad. My Sellers had contractors lined up during their escrow, to rip up the carpets, restore the hardwood floors beneath, redo the electrical throughout and plumbing, while they were there. This was an investment property for them, and they had both financial and restorative vision. They rented it out successfully and quickly. When it was time to move forward with a a larger project, they asked me to help them sell it. All of their hard work paid off, as we were giddy reviewing the six offers received!
