Have You Found Your Dream Home Online?House made of tools

Or are you finding it hard to see the potential in the homes you’re viewing?

Sometimes, when you’re searching for real estate, viewing property can be super-frustrating. With professional images, the home looks impeccable online, but when you show up for your viewing, it’s far from it. Photos can be so deceiving! Often, they emphasize the positive and leave out the scary bits.

Never mind that! I can help you look at the property with different goggles.

If you dig a little deeper, and your budget has some wiggle room, you might be able to visualize something different than what you see today. Don’t dismiss a home without trying to see its potential first.

That’s what we do when we buy property. Every home we’ve purchased was pretty run down, at first. Some homes needed new doors and new windows. Others needed new siding. We’ve even bought houses and gutted them, right back to the walls. But we’ve made them into homes that work for our family. Every time!


Small Changes to Help You Personalize Your Home

I get it! Not everyone has the budget for a gut-job, but there might be small updates you can make to increase the value and make your new house feel like home. Here are some ideas to get you thinking of smaller changes that turn any house into a home that’s perfect for you:

  • Personalize with paint or stain
  • Change the flooring
  • Upgrade the front door
  • Change the lighting
  • Fix electrical issues
  • Landscape to improve curb appeal
  • Knock out a wall for a more open concept
  • Divide or add a room
  • Add a bathroom
  • Renovate the kitchen
  • Add an accessory apartment

These are just a few ideas to get you started. With my design qualifications, decades in the building industry, and personal experience renovating my own homes, I have an eye for detail and a knack for seeing a property’s potential. I’d like to get to know you and your goals and help you plan for the future.
