After & Before House Photos

December 8th, 2012 · 8 Comments

We usually show ugly homes that are renovated into beautiful homes.  Not so in this case.  The most recent owners were not as tidy as the previous owners.

Here’s how the house looked out front when it was purchased in 2008 for $212,000.

By 2012, they had killed the palm trees.  It was sold as a short sale for $110,000.
