I have started my internet search for a possible investment opportunity, and found this home that is up for short sale. The home has been on the market since April 1. By the time I spoke to the agent, he told me it was more than likely going under contract the next day. Oh well! Not that I am ready to buy yet, but I already invested time thinking about this home….so I will post what I put together.
The back of the house and the sides are stucco, so I am guessing the front is also. The brick is not attractive to me. Look how cute this house is with the front of the porch painted yellow and the steps painted white – makes a big difference!

I do like the look of painting the steps. Also, the hallway looks pretty narrow (can’t really tell). To be on the safe side, I would only hang a gallery of artwork with no furniture underneath.

Notice in the first picture, the french doors on the right. From what I can piece together, this home has a center hall, and this living room is to the right when you walk in.
Let’s give this house a breath of some coastal air

Notice the french doors again in the dining room, AND the Christmas tree in the living room. These photos were taken April 1, but I can’t go throwing stones, because I still have not put all of my Christmas decorations away.
Again, let’s bring the seabreeze into the dining room.
Built-in breakfast nooks were somewhat typical in this style home.
Let’s travel upstairs to the bath. From this one and only picture of the bath, we can kinda get the idea of what it looks like.
I would much prefer to see this.

I am going to bypass the bedrooms and go right up to the attic.
Looks like there may be room for a bed.

The back of the house (obviously).
I think it would look much more invting like this.
