Husband and I have an offer in on a house in the Arcadia district of Phoenix. It’s a short sale, which we all know is anything but short, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed anyway. I am really really trying not to jump ahead of myself and re-decorate the whole house in my head, but of course that’s kind of asking the impossible… So, try as I might, I keep imagining everything I will do to update this house. My realtor would definitely be giving me a lecture on disappointment and the importance of not putting too much stock into a sale.
For a house that needs to be remodeled, this house doesn’t need to be that remodeled. Meaning, we don’t have to move any walls, but we do have to update the kitchen counters, floors, bathrooms and exterior.
I have been researching and browsing lots of houses and websites for inspiration and had to share some of my favorite finds. I recently drove around the Arcadia area and nabbed some exterior shots with my smart phone. Hopefully the owners didn’t think some thief was taking pictures of their homes for a future stakeout. Sorry Arcadia residents, it was just me! But make sure to take a look at some of these beautiful homes!
