My mom finally closed on her new home today and I couldn't be happier for her! It's been a difficult and lengthy process, as it often is when targeting homes in distress (i.e. short-sales and foreclosures) but when we are finished with the renovation, I'm sure it will be worth the wait. It's not a complete tear down or anything, but it needs new floors, countertops, carpet, tile, sinks, faucets, paint, and fixtures. Even with all this factored in, it still ended up being a great deal in a beautiful neighborhood and we are thrilled to have her so close. Maybe we can start having kids now that we have a babysitter close by ;) j/k Tons of before and after posts to come. I'll show you some photos of the house and the offensive drapes that we received as a closing gift tomorrow.
Congrats Mom! Love you much!!!
