Thinking about buying a bank owned vacation home in Davenport, Florida?

Real Estate Agent with JC Penny Realty

This spring I spent some time with a great couple from out of state looking for a good deal on a vacation home in Davenport, Florida.

After spending a day or two looking at repossessed homes, listening to the dead batteries beeping in the smoke alarms, viewing homes without air conditioning ( which I tell you, it gets very warm on the second floor), and viewing many pools that reminded me alot of a giant bowls of overcooked pea soup.

Some were just needing a good cleaning and paint, some needed new flooring, most needed appliances, some needed doors, toilet seats, outlet covers, pool pumps. The list goes on and on.

They decided on a 6 bedroom 4 bath pool home that needed someone to bring it back to life.

This vacation home needed a lot but my customers saw through mess in front of them to the bones and what this home could really be.

The new owners of the home have really put a lot of work into this beautiful vacation home in Davenport, Florida.  They really are pleased with the end result.

I thought I would share a few photos of the job they have done. I didn't get a picture of the new kitchen but here are a few.

Not all repossessed homes need the interior work that this one did. So, please keep mind when viewing homes that are bank owned not only the price but what you will need to do to bring it back to it's orignal beauty.
