Before and After Photos ~ 603 Wildberry Drive, Pearl MS

Real Estate Agent with Front Gate Real Estate Broker 11085

A prospective home buyer and I were discussing the upgrades to the home for sale in Patrick Farms at 603 Wildberry Drive. 

While we talked, I browsed the photos from the old listing and compared to how the home looks today.

What a transformation! The before photos show a cold, depressing home with stained concrete floors, dark walls, and a yard completely devoid of any plant life.

After the current owners purchased the home, they added granite countertops to the kitchen, laminate flooring throughout the kitchen, dining, and family room, new carpeting in three bedrooms, and created flower beds and added vibrant, happy plantings.

See the difference for yourself...

There isn't a significant difference in the front yard. To be fair, the first photo was probably taken in the winter, as evidenced by the gray lawn.

The following photo really caught my attention. From blank slate to happy home. Imagine all the wonderful evenings sitting outside in the (now) lush oasis.

It's amazing how much more open everything looks with the lighter colors.

Right? It looked "okay" when they bought the home, but it looks great now! JL Boney, III

Hi Pat... just sold a home like this. I sold it in 2005 representing sellers and it was basic, nice condition at age of seven years. 13 years later, two more homeowners later, a major remodel and I sold it again now to a buyer who had to do nothing to move in.

The kitchen change is huge and a good thing and the first pictures answers the question why homes sell better in the spring versus winter in Oklahoma City. Bermuda grass goes dormant without water and heat.
