Reno Ready in Hawthorne

Catherine and George set out intentionally to find an antique home in as close to original condition as possible. Many folks who feel they are prepared to do work become quickly overwhelmed as the inspection process reveals all of the to-do’s. Not these two… They patiently waited while not one, but two leaking oil tanks were addressed, to get their hands dirty bringing their Hawthorne Beauty back to its full glory. I can’t wait to see the results!

Fixer-uppers are not for the faint of heart. Make sure you know what you are taking on and that you can handle it.

Buying a home that needs renovations can be a way to get more for your money, make your new home your own, and allow you to spread your costs over time. Getting through the inspections, negotiations and financing can be challenging, but the rewards can be really exciting. Want more information on the realities of buying a home to fix up? I’m glad to help!
