It's a Done Deal...Shag Walls and All!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Heritage-New Braunfels

My favorite part of the job is when my buyers' loan funds and I can give them the keys.  Today the title company called to say the loan had funded and I knew my clients couldn't wait another minute, so I told them to go get them!

By the time I arrived an hour and a half later, they had the locks changed and most of the carpets ripped up.  The house is a 1976 ranch in a desirable, established neighborhood close to New Braunfels High SchoolLanda Park and Panther Canyon. Locals describe the neighborhood as "on the hill"...as in we just bought a home "on the hill."  It has lots of square footage, an open floor plan, a large corner lot and deer...lots of deer. It needs tons of work, but they came ready for the challenge to put in some good 'ole sweat equity.

Here's the ranch rambler on the hill:

 

Carpets already ripped up!

Nathan was busy getting ready to turn this formal dining room into the 4th bedroom....equity!!!

Andrea was tearing up the green and teal carpet in what will be baby's room.

Blue bathroom with swinging "saloon" doors. Just a little added privacy there, hoss.

 

Here's a good look at the multi-colored carpet.

Even though the yellow counters are in good condition, they have future plans for the kitchen, too.

But the best part is the powder room with orange shag walls!

Reminds me of that move where Russell Brand cozies up with a fuzzy wall.  Awesome!

And, it's all theirs!  Shag walls and all!

How great. they look so thilled.  So wonderful that they can see the potential of the home and can fix up rather affordably.

Patrick- It's my favorite part, so I think I'll start posting the stories.

Vickie- I can't wait to see it either.  I'm such a before-and-after junkie!

Debbie- So many people can't see the potential, but I say if the house is in a great location and has a good floor plan, the rest can be changed if you have the time, energy and funds.  Of course, you need to make sure it's a good enough investment given the work needed.
