Another project from Lora

10 Jan

Regular readers will be familiar with Lora’s first renovation project ( http://tiny.cc/gontf ) — well, she’s managed to work her magic again!

I thought the front courtyard was a huge improvement to the entrance to the house — it really needed that bit of wood to balance all the siding and the color is a huge improvement from the drab brown it was before, no?

One of the other things that I’m really impressed with in terms of Lora’s approach is the fact that she does exactly what she needs to do to sell the house and nothing that she doesn’t.  I’m an avid follower of UK developer, Sarah Beeny’s property shows and she’s constantly hammering home the point (get the pun?) that if you’re looking to flip a house, you need to keep firmly focused on the fact that it’s not personal – it’s an investment.  Far too many developers buy a place to flip and fix it up as if they were going to live in it themselves versus looking at it as a buyer would.

At any rate, I’m sure you’ll agree that this is another job well done by Lora and team!

    I also like how they made the windows not stand out as by painting the trim the same color as the house which fits more with the style of the home. It’s amazing. I want to buy it!

      She’s so smart — and WHAT a view! Great looking house. She did an amazing job.
