Lee didn’t have time to do the weekly updates on the Roadrunner house for a couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean things weren’t done. In fact, other than a missing piece of glass in the shower door, a few knobs, and repainting bathtub fixtures in the master, it’s done. I’d say it doesn’t look bad at all, given the budget we had. It’s certainly a huge improvement on its previous scary state!
The house is on the market for $300K, which is very reasonable for its neighborhood. It’s SUCH a great area of Bryan: very quiet, yet right near all sorts of schools, shops, and main roads. And on a cul-de-sac! Please share the listing with anyone you know who’s looking for housing in the Bryan/College Station area.
At our open house yesterday, visitors thought the good-quality vinyl plank floor was bamboo. I am very impressed with the flooring, myself. I’d have it in a house, especially with children or dogs. It looks like wood, but will hold up better. Consider it for rental homes!
The other part that went over well was the kitchen. It doesn’t even look like the same house. The dark, sad room now appears bright and spacious. There are so many cabinets, and two pantries!
I made a video tour of the house, as the front-door lock mechanism was being installed. This gives you a good idea of all those closets and storage areas:
Of course, everyone who goes in the house wonders why we left the wall between the kitchen and the dining room, but fellow rehabbers will understand. If we had done that, we would have had to price the house above the market values. We need to fix up the house AND make a bit of a profit!
Hooray, by the way! We got the professional photos back, so of course we want to share them with you here. If you want to see what it looked like “before” go over and visit the Roadrunner house page. Remember to click the photos to see them larger.
