I’m SO excited! Easter Monday we closed on our foreclosure and have been slowly updating and renovating everything. Today, begins the outside! There’s a lot of banging, the dog is freakin, and I’m just too excited to work right now!
Because this is what you saw when you walked up to our home.
Please notice the paint splotches, the outdated-rusted-broken lights, and all out ugly entry.
Ignore the pumpkins, they used to have our names on them, lol
Now we come to the other issue. The wood trim. This is the largest issue. The trim was in BAD shape!
The ugly light and the spot where they attempted to paint and then stopped. I.e. Our ENTIRE house is being repainted as well! It’s hard to see, but the side was covered in so much green ick… The house looked like it hadn’t been power washed in 5 years… So, starting today, this is all changing! We’re repainting the ENTIRE exterior, painting the front door, getting new shutters, gutters, and down spouts, replacing the rotted trim and wrapping all the wood, Putting in a whole new back door, and replacing the lights. I’m beyond excited for this! It’s going to look so much better! One of the greatest aspects… is once we complete this, we will have only put about 12k into the house (including a new HVAC) and it will be back to full market value which is about 60-80K more than we paid!!! LOVE instant equity in a bad market!
Bye, Bye blue house! We look forward to your transformation! I’ll take pics tomorrow morning and keep updating until we’re done 🙂
