When I was a little girl, I used to spend hours decorating my Barbie house. I loved using a bookshelf that I would design each floor of Barbie's fabulous penthouse apartment. Each shelf would be transformed into a decorator's dream.
Today, this dream came to life as my husband and I transformed another historic building in our wonderful little Texas town–Granbury, Texas. Sitting on the corner of Bridge and Crockett Street, this stone-wrapped iconic building has been undergoing extensive renovations.

beam and branch realty: Oops ~ This Investor Got Stung - 09/13/21 02:36 PM
While recently assisting a buyer for a home, during the inspection, several large ticket items reared their ugly heads. The roof, the HVAC, and several appliances needed some serious remediation. After a discussion with our Inspector, we determined how we would go back to the Seller to negotiate repairs.
The Listing Agent let me know very quickly that the owner/Investor of this home had not owned the home long enough to file a claim on the roof (which clearly is in need of an entirely new roof). Therefore, the Investor was going to lose money. They offered us $1,000 in lieu of … (24 comments)
