So Heaton Dainard found an investor this property to flip, assisted with all financing (hard money loan), assisted our investor in creating an exit strategy and rehab plan, used our trusted contractors and stagers and had the house sold before it even went on the market for top dollar!  It sold for over a million, nearly double what it was purchased for before the rehab. Let us know what you think of the transformation. I'll be updating the blog with the number breakdown in the coming week, so stayed tuned in to Heaton Dainard's blog!

Contemporary houses are becoming more and more sought after in Seattle.  I know it's common for real estate agents to say that contemporary houses sit on the market longer and are harder to sell, but it's not the case in Seattle.  Perhaps it's the influence of the tech industry in our backyard, but modern and contemporary design is becoming a favorite of home buyers in the Pacific Northwest.

Here are the before shots:

 

And let's take a look at the AFTER shots!

 

Active Rain community, I want to hear from you! Do you like contemporary homes? What do you think of our most recent flip?  What do you LOVE about our Laurelhurst project?

Wow, pretty amazing before and after pictures.  I like contemporary, not the hot colors although, just a little too flashy for me, but hey, there is a buyer for everything

So true Mary.  We have Eichler and Streng homes here in Sacramento that would be perfect for this type of transformation.  Even on a smaller scale it could be very dramatic.

Cathy,

If you would not has disclosed the home was in Seattle I would have thought Sacramento. What an amazing transformation. We have a home in Fair Oaks that could benefit from such a face lift.

Beautiful transformation Cathy. The new architectural elements really make it. We have a lot of Eichler homes here in the Bay area too. Always a pleasant surprise to see one. From the simplest to the complex, that man was a genius for his time.

Now that's what I would call a rehab.  It's amazing what a good eye can spot and a great contractor can create. Thanks for sharing this great transformation.

Wow, what a change and that place is amazing. I can't believe that you were able to change that place so much. (Can't even tell it is the same house) I'm betting the neighbors are loving you.
