grandview: Progresss On 4408 Grandview (Project South KC) Pt. 8 - 04/19/09 11:18 AM
We’re in the finishing stages of our renovation at 4408 Grandview.  Carpet was installed on Friday and the majority of the interior paint was completed on Wednesday.  I can’t wait to get this hosue on the market.  Just look at it.   Couldnt you just call this place home?

Its a lot easier to start relaxing about a renovation getting done once the carpet has been installed.  I love how open this living space feels.  It sort of reminds me of the renovation we did 13608 Spring St in Grandview, MO.

The upstaris kitchen was set last week but take … (1 comments)

grandview: Progress On 4408 Grandview Pt. 3 (Project South KC) - 03/14/09 10:07 AM
I stopped by our renovation of 4408 Grandview after a few showing at 9808 E. 76th Tr in Raytown, MO.  I’m pretty excited to have another large house like that on the market.
Most of the new windows have already been installed in this house.  I’m still trying to think of the best way for us to landscape this house.  We don’t get many houses with circle drives like this one.

Lots of progress has been made on this house in the basement.  The room you see in this picture will become the 5th bedroom.

On the opposite side … (3 comments)

grandview: Housing Stats And Information On Grandview, MO - 02/28/09 12:10 PM
I’m not really the type of person to post housing statistics but in the case of Grandview I felt that it was neccesary.  About a month ago Forbes magazine included Grandview, MO on its list of America’s Fastest Dying Towns.  Ever since this article was published Grandview has been working hard to defend its image.  Since my brokerage Glad Heart Realty primarily focuses on the South Kansas City and Granview area we felt that it was important for us to do our part in defending this small town.  With Facts.
Over the past year my company Vizion has flipped 7 houses … (3 comments)

grandview: 12512 Winchester Vizion Home Renovation Video (Project Grandview) - 01/31/09 01:55 AM
The renovation of 12512 Winchester has been completed.  This fantastic home took only 4 weeks to renovate and is a fantastic continuation of project grandview.

A few things I really love about the house:
Two large living areas
Granite Counters
Open spacious kitchen
Huge covered patio
Amazing deck
Fully fenced backyard
Close proximity to the park
This home like many of our renovations really just needed a bit of updating to become a Vizion home.  If your interested in a showing just give me a call or shoot me an email.

grandview: What is Project Grandview? - 01/25/09 10:13 AM
Project Grandview refers to all Vizion home renovations that take place in the city of Grandview. This is a brief overview and history of Grandview, MO.
Grandview is a city in Jackson County, Missouri, United States located just south of Kansas City, MO.   The population was 24,881 at the 2000 census.
Grandview began as a modest farming community called Anderson District, so named in honor of John Anderson, the owner of the only general store in the area. In the late 1800s, the farmers and other residents of the area made a crucial decision in the development of our town-they … (4 comments)

grandview: Progress On 12512 Winchester (Project Grandview) - 01/23/09 02:57 PM
We are in our final week of renovation on 12512 Winchester in Grandview, MO.  I stopped by the property earlier today after a showing on 11819 Delmar.

The exterior paint has been completed and our standard blue door has been installed.  This house is located right across the street from an awesome park.  I’m sure being located on this street it will get plenty of drive by and walk by exposure.

All of the interior paint has been completed and the new carpet has been installed.   I love how large the rooms are in this house.  Even the bathrooms … (4 comments)

grandview: I’m Thinking About Staging All My Vacant Listings - 01/20/09 12:44 PM
I’m leaning towards having all of my vacant listings staged.  Each time I see a staged home I’m impressed with how much better the house looks.  I’ve already talked to most of my investors and many of them have agreed to pay for this additional service…especially if it sells their properties faster.  For the ones that are not  on board with staging yet I hope these before and after pictures will help change their perceptions of this service.
The house below is listed at $139,900.  This is one of our intro level flips.





grandview: Progress on 12512 Winchester (Project Grandview) - 01/17/09 07:46 AM
I’ve been slacking a little bit on the progress posts for this house only because I haven't needed to take a look at this crews progress.  The crew that’s doing this house also did our house on 14500  Craig which is also in Grandview just a few miles away.

Can you believe it? One of our crews is actually hard at work on a Saturday.  I think it’s because yesterday we got about 2 inches of unexpected snow.  Weather here in the midwest is pretty random today its about 50 degrees.  As you can see the exterior paint is nearly … (2 comments)

grandview: 14500 Craig (Project River Oaks) Renovation Video - 01/01/09 02:45 PM
14500 Craig is the second renovation we’ve done in the popular River Oaks subdivision of Grandview, MO.   This house sits right off of one of the nicest golf courses in the city.   I’m sure the new deck we put on this house will be put to good use watching many golf games.

This house really didn’t need much just a little updating.  I really love the kitchen it’s very warm and inviting.

grandview: Progress On Project River Oaks - 12/13/08 01:13 PM
After showing a few houses in South Kansas City this evening I drove out to Grandview to see how things were going on Project River Oaks.  I was surprised to find that are sub crews have been working six days a week in order to finish on  schedule.  I promise they are doing this on their own free will.

The new deck has almost been fully constructed.  Looks like the only thing missing right now are the stairs.  This new deck is about the same size as the old one but with this house backing up to a golf course … (4 comments)

grandview: Progress On Project River Oaks - 12/06/08 10:41 AM
The Craig St remodel is moving along as scheduled.  Today after a few showings in the southern part of the city I drove out to Grandview to take some progress photos.   14500 Craig should be completed at the end of the month and be ready to list in early January.
The new garage doors have already been installed along with the new roof.

For those of you who have seen the before pictures you might remember there being a huge hole right here in the ceiling.  It’s all fixed now.

A new deck is being built out back which … (3 comments)

The very second I saw this property I knew it would make an incredible home.  Unlike so many of the properties Vizion does its wasn't hard to see this one’s potential.  Of all the homes coming up the early part of next year this is one of my favorites.  But lets not get carried away just yet this house still needs some serious work.  I’m estimating the … (1 comments)

Vizion did a home in the River Oaks subdivsion last summer.  A lot has changed since then.  Even though these two houses are in the same price range its hard to beat a newer generation Vizion home.  And if that wasnt enought how about this….It backs up to a golf course.  The finished basement and open floor plan will make this a great house for entertaining.  I … (3 comments)

grandview: Two Vizionkc Grandview, MO Acquisitions Are In The Works - 10/14/08 03:07 PM
Everything is still up in the air at this point but it looks like Vizion is in hot pursuit of two properties in Grandview, MO.  One property is located on 122nd and the other would be located in the very desirable River Oaks subdivision.  Specific details such as the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and price ranges are not yet available but what we do know is that these homes will be incredible.  Features such as solid surface granite, tile showers, and refinished hardwood floors are becoming standard amenities in Vizion homes so it is safe to assume that these Grandview acquisition … (0 comments)
