Second Chances!

When this house hit the market in April of this year, I walked in… and promptly walked out.  In spite of my revulsion, it sold for way over asking ($775K) in just 13 days. It was a project, to say the least and I didn’t have anyone brave enough in my arsenal to take it on.  But someone did!

This house has been completely and wonderfully re-conceived and brought up to a standard befitting the celeb-lined street north of Los Feliz Blvd.  As you can see below, the house was a dog with seemingly very little potential.  However, possessing a keen eye and a strong stomach, its new owner has miraculously transformed the home (inside and out) into a true beauty.  At $1,175,000 it is priced well for the area.  A $400,000 profit in 6 months, you might ask.  My answer is: pull the comps!  It is a move-in ready, completely updated, stylishly finished pad at $581/SF.

If you are looking for a low maintenance house with charm and style, this one won’t last long.

If you want to see it, let me know! Let's make an offer!
