A Real Treat To Clean

What do you think of this remodeled shower?  They spent a lot of time installing the stone wall.  Must be tons of fun to clean around the stones & grout: soap scum, mildew, hard water deposits, etc.  You can already see the discoloration.

This Is Why Buyers Don’t Like Fixer-Uppers

July 16th, 2014 · 4 Comments

Unusual tile patterns, odd structural changes, and/or amateur remodeling can scare buyers.  Because they know it will require lots of work and dust to change it.

Today’s buyer would rather pay more for a house that is remodeled or in good/clean condition than a house that requires finishing a project.

If these are the owners, they sure didn’t care about getting higher offers from buyers.  If these are renters, the seller should have kicked them out and repainted the house.
