I viewed this home long before it was purchased by our clients. It had been listed for sale for a L-O-N-G time and the seller was resistant to doing any updating or staging despite the real estate agent’s suggestions
Very distinctive tile/paint colors and dated amenities were a sale stopper for most home buyers.
The house sat empty long after I viewed it and the price continued to decrease.
This home is located in a lovely Corvallis neighborhood, has a great floor plan and we could see it was truly a diamond in the rough.
When I pulled up to the house to meet the new owners for a remodeling consultation I still remembered vividly the awkward shower and surround, bathroom carpeting and oak cabinetry.
(I can’t remember my grocery list but this image was still burned into my memory).
The new owners wanted to do extensive remodeling prior to moving in and we thoroughly enjoyed helping this home become a dream come true!
Could you see the potential in the entry and stairwell?
Carerra marble wasn’t a livable option for this rural home, we wanted something more durable and found this beautiful granite which offered a permanently sealed surface — a durable look that would last.
Attention to detail made this bathroom have spa retreat appeal — beautiful cabinetry, lighting and fixtures add to an elegant feel.
The garden tub didn’t need a surround — there already was a full shower that we refinished in silver travertine coordinating with silver travertine floors.
We love helping homes achieve their full potential — whether it is preparing to sell or remodeling to live well. With all of these beautiful updates, I don’t anticipate the new owners to be moving anytime soon — they LOVE their home!
