Fixer-upper – situated in a pleasant setting on a tree shaded cul-de-sac lot. Improvements in progress. Fully functional, but desperate for a kitchen makeover, and a remodeled master bath.
Is the house desperate for both a kitchen makeover and a remodeled master bath? Is it desperate for a kitchen makeover, and it HAS a remodeled master bath? How desperate are you? How desperate is the agent to sell this place, when he only gave us three photos to help make up our minds?
As to the existing kitchen: WOW. Colors that POP and appliances that STAND OUT. I swear, I’ve seen appliances on porches in Kentucky that are more up to date than this range.
Maybe the agent isn’t being as honest as Petsmart Groomer suggests. Maybe just as when an agent says “up to date” and you observe a kitchen with the latest 1974 fixtures, when this agent says “desperate” he really meant “If you don’t rebuild it the split second you remove the contingencies, someone’s toddler will sneeze on these single-pane windows and the whole house will pancake.”
Mmmm, pancakes! Better makeover the kitchen if you want some!
Meanwhile, I’m hoping this agent takes more photos of the house. A few more of them should help hold the house together. They’d have to be stronger than those windows.
