Spring has sprung and Summer is now here. The Southern Slope's air is filled with the pulsing sounds of power miter saws and pneumatic nail guns.
Let's take a look at two recent real property sales and their nearly complete gut renovations.
|The before picture: This 1,440sf two family, 299 16th Street, sold for $812,000 back on September 13th, 2011. The new buyers wasted no time in gutting the interior back to the studs.|
|299 16th Street sporting its new full frontal facade lift.|
|The new owners have chosen to keep the humorously mis-designed gate with its molded concrete pillars featuring a backwards "WELCOME" sign and street address number.|
Another gut renovation just up the hill on 16th Street and Eight Avenue next to the Sud's Laundromat, is reaching fulfillment. Last sold for $915.000 on November 18th, 2011, it appears they are painting over the brick facade. What do you think?
