    Wow. Simply unreal!

    More Carol than you:)

  2. Bo says:

    Were the hardwoods under that (prior) lovely carpet or is that a new addition as well?

  3. J Scott says:

    Bo –

    Those hardwoods are new. It put us over budget on this one (well, maybe it was the landscaping that put us over budget), but ultimately it was a great decision. And Carol’s decision to go with a darker stain for the wood was perfect…

  4. J Scott says:

    Ez –

    You are correct.

    If this house is on market more then 2 weeks, I’ll be shocked. Simply wow.

    Please tell your wife her staging inspires sets the bar for the rest of us.

    This is why the govt should not hinder quality flippers. You took a neighborhood eyesore and polished it into a gem.

    Great work as usual, J Scott!

  7. J Scott says:

    Thanks Jason, Ingrid!

    Jason – My wife agrees with you that this house should sell quickly. I, on the other hand, think this one is going to be a bit tougher to sell, as it’s a bit higher price point than any of our previous houses ($175K) and is in a neighborhood that has a LOT of other houses for sale (though that could work in our favor). I think if we can get buyers to actually look at it, we’ll be good…but it may be tougher to find interested buyers in this price range.

    Anyway, the goal is to get it sold in the next week, before the tax credit expires. If we don’t do that, it may take a LONG time…

    I have to agree with Carol, I think the activity this week might surprise you.

    If you don’t mind me asking who are you using for your deck work? I need to reconstruct a front wood porch in the house I am working in now and could use a good recommendation.


  9. J Scott says:

    Luis –

    Shoot me an email and I’ll send you the info for my deck guy…he’s fantastic…

    Looks real nice J Scott.

    I like the open layout of this house.

  12. Cynthia says:

    Great job! Curious to see how fast it sells… Would love to see more landscaping pics. You guys inspire!

    If you can just get potential buyers in the house, it won’t take long for one of them to get emotionally attached. It looks great.

  15. AntoineS says:

    This is one of my favorite projects y’all have done. You and your team has done a excellent job with this house. From the exterior to the interior, its great. The only thing I would of had was bigger fridge to fill that spot more. Other than that this project turned out really good.
