Buying a Foothill Farms Home the Seller Remodeled for Herself
There is a difference between buying a flipper home and a Foothill Farms home the seller remodeled for herself. With some flipper homes, you don’t know what you are buying and what’s been covered up by the flipper investor. The flipper could be a guy with integrity or a woman who just wanted to do things as cheaply as possible without any experience. You just don’t know. But with a homeowner who remodels the home to her own tastes, the improvements tend to be a bit better quality with improved workmanship. Owners who remodel are often pretty picky.
This Foothill Farms home is in the Hillsdale subdivision, between Oakhollow and Hillsdale and south of Robert Frost Park. The seller says she absolutely loves her neighbors and will miss them terribly, but she has been forced to move away. It’s hard to leave a home that you have fixed up for yourself, thinking you will retire there and then your plans change. This is the second listing recently that my sellers have been in an identical situation.
If you’re a first-time home buyer, you will love this home, guaranteed. When you first walk into the home, you’ll look down and notice the beautiful white ceramic tilework under your feet and throughout the main living area, except for the carpeted living room. Then your eyes will move up, and you’ll be mesmerized by the captivating view through the window of the yard, backdropped by cypress trees and a lush green lawn. You probably won’t even care about the kitchen.
Until you walk into the kitchen and fall in love when you notice how creatively the seller installed granite on the back of the stove so you won’t have to look at the back of the stove from the dining room. The counters, of course, are granite. White glossy cabinets. And the refrigerator can stay if you ask for it in the purchase contract. Not only is there plenty of space to cook in the kitchen, but there is also a large breakfast nook area that is almost large enough to feed a football team.
This used to be a four bedroom home, but the sellers before this owner had removed a wall and made one of the bedrooms into additional living space, accented overhead by a fleur de lis ceiling. The Foothill Farms home now features 3 bedrooms and two baths. Check out those gorgeous ceiling fans.
