Modern (Family) California Bungalow in Eagle Rock

My newest cutie pie listing is a perfect example of super smart buyers who did it right. They bought a fixer in a great neighborhood and prioritized their updates over the past 3 years.  And they are going to do really well on the sale. They did the updates that I most recommend to my clients:

Exterior- make a good first impression.

Family Room- This original 1922 bungalow had an addition that made sense in the 70’s (wood paneling + shag carpet).  My clients saw the potential. They raised the roof (literally) and added a wall of windows and wallah–  A true family living space big enough to eat, play and relax in.

The wow factor of this home is the oversized family room with vaulted ceilings and wall of windows. It just feels good in here.

 

You can tell that this house is not a cheap flip. My clients poured their heart into these thoughtful renovations. It takes some vision and determination but it really does pay off in the end. Be smart. Be patient. Be willing to live with imperfection at first. Prioritize what is most valuable to you and your family and that will translate to the next family that buys your home (and make you money).

This house is currently listed for sale at $849,000
