Before & After Remodel

May 2nd, 2015 · 5 Comments

Before Living Room.  The house was purchased for $125,000.

After Living Room.  They tried selling it for $200,000 but priced too high.  Then at $175,000 with no offers; still priced too high.  It eventually sold at $155,000.  Marginal profit at that price.  Lesson hopefully learned.
