Buying a Home that Needs Some Reno

The Triangle housing market is fierce right now and has been for some time.  Homes that are already updated are selling especially fast, and buyers frequently find themselves in multiple offer situations.

For this reason, it might be wise to consider a home that needs some updating and that other buyers might overlook.

A client recently sent me these photos of kitchen updates she made to a home I helped her purchase a couple of years ago.  Here’s the before (not bad at all!):

Here’s the after! She pulled up the vinyl flooring to reveal wood floors, had a granite countertop and sink installed by a pro, and added a tile backsplash.  She did the tile work herself after watching a You Tube video and asking a few pointed questions of her dad.  Awesome!
