Nice wood!

By Living Room Realty, October 30, 2018

It was love at first sight for Rachel and this perfect little ranch. Located just a few mins from Woodstock for well under $300k, how could you not be in love?! 

Believe it or not, this house was on the market for almost 50 days with three price drops! It’s like it was waiting for just the right person to see it’s potential.

Here’s the thing. Upon entry, the entire main floor was tragically covered in a tight crunchy blue carpet. Thankfully, Rachel could see beyond the crunch and peep the potential of the beat up oak hardwoods that lay below.

However, once we ripped up the carpets we realized only half the space had oak floors. The other half was particle board on subfloor. “Oh damn! You should really get a floor contractor in here. This is way too much work.” I admit, I thought this problem could only be handled by a pro. Ye of little faith.

Rachel had a different approach. She drove right down to lumber liquidators and not only did she refinish the current floors, she also installed all new oak on the other half! “Wood” you believe it?! Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Look at that skill! Congratulations Rachel. Way to prove me wrong!
