I have had the honor to work closely with a family that has made a couple of real estate purchases here in Fayetteville. They are from NY and most recently they purchased a short sale and it was in really bad condition. The house itself was well made and structurally sound. The issues were extensive cosmetic ones inside. The buyers were able to see beyond the issues and they came up with a plan to renovate the house and resale it. They opened the space up by removing a wall, closing in an outside door and installing a window. Everything in the house is new. Upgraded kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, new tile, carpet and laminate floors, new plumbing fixtures, new HVAC system and new windows. It is not just the fact that it was remodeled, but the quality of the work is outstanding. This house, listed for $108,000, is an absolute bargain with the number of upgrades that were added to it. If you are interested in learning more about this house, visit our website at http://www.debbiewaitleyrealtor.com and search for 905 Hunters View Drive, Fayetteville, NC. The pictures will amaze you and you will be on the phone, calling to schedule your private showing.
I love the change of seasons. It invigorates me and motivates me to do things around the house and yard. I have been extremely lucky in that I have owned a home for the last 25 years. Not the same home, I’ve had to move several times in my previous job, but I’ve loved every one of them. As we transition from fall into winter, I have several tasks that I need to finish. I need to put another coat of paint on the front porch. I need to finish painting the end of the house. We had problems with our well house this fall and I need to insulate the inside and build a new top for it. After that is done, it will need repainting. I definitely need to prioritize and get busy. The wonderful thing for me is the feeling that I get when I come home and approach my house and turn in the driveway. I feel so much pride for the little projects that we have completed ourselves and I think that our house looks wonderful! For the next several months, I will overlook the constant rain of leaves in the yard from the large tree in the back yard. As much as I work at it each weekend, I will never get ahead of that tree. For me though, it is a wonderful feeling that I own this piece of property and this house. Although it is a lot of work, it is definitely well worth it!
