That is the thing about buying an older home. There are treasures and surprises around every bend.
Renovation is like orchestration. There must be someone to make music with the madness. My husband, Chad, coordinated each of these pros to overlap, but to not be in each other's way.
Tuscaloosa is brimming with sleepy houses that need some tender love and care. Two of my most recent sales on the lake are fixer-uppers. One couple put a contract on a house we showed by boat – they bought it, sight unseen. That is how slim the lake market is, and how motivated buyers are. They see beyond the dust and the must. They know when a house has great potential.
An exciting transformation conducted by “my crew” – a team of reno experts – was undertaken on a home in NorthRiver that will hopefully be the next feature on our blog. It’s a 1960s retro coming back to life – complete with fresh paint and shag carpet. Stay tuned.
Tired of the same old? Jump in and make some changes. You will be glad you did. With a few hundred new University families coming soon, you will find that your elbow grease may provide some new family a treasure – and give you a sweet profit.
We have had fun blogging our transformation at housewisetuscaloosa.com. Check us out on Instagram too @housewisetuscaloosa.
