Client Transformations!!! #LookWhatALittlePaintCanDo

Anna and Keaton purchased this white gem in April 2015. As you may guess, it was a house that you needed to be able to squint your eyes and imagine what could be, both inside and out. When you did, you could see all kinds of gorgeous spaces with nice lines and open flow.

As we looked at houses you could tell they had a style and I think a desire to make a space their own developed. That is exactly what they have done for nearly two years. They scraped away popcorn ceilings, added new flooring, updated two fireplace walls, and flipped the lower level into a hip lounge. It has been a cool transformation to watch on Anna’s blog: www.hottubpalace.weebly.com

The exterior looks amazingly different. Neighbors must want to knock on the door and hug you for this transformation! Wow, guys! I cannot wait to see what you do next! Pulling in the drive, it has to feel like that cool place you imagined with squinted eyes!! Wow!!

 

Kristen and Isaac got the keys to this 4 bedroom Prairie Village home in May of 2016. No time was wasted in improving curb appeal! Roof was replaced prior to closing, but what a difference a new coat of paint can make!! The brick looks so sharp! The house light fixtures even look better! Modern sophistication- just asking you to come in and have a glass of wine!

Another project was a master suite reconfiguration and remodel. Drawings have been made… So excited for you! You two are going to end up with a real slick house with a short walk to Blue Moose and family. Thank you for the text with photos updates. Truly a highlight of my day!

HyVee comes to Brookside! NOT A JOKE! #LifeChanging

HyVee is coming to Brookside!! Well shoot, they already did!!

On Monday, HyVee came to Brookside and delivered my groceries to my front door step. These were all groceries I had selected on their website, at 11:08 pm, in my bed, with my husband, as we sipped wine and watched some TV.

What type of freaking grocery store, allows you to sit on a bed, drink alcohol and watch TV while you decide what type of deli meat you would like? From my experience, I do not think they would care if my two boys were both screaming while I tried to decide if the brand name mini rice cakes are worth it or is the store brand really the same thing and way cheaper?

It was amazing! #LifeChanging I highly recommend it. I insist that you try it!!

The website was pretty easy to use and seems to get easier with time. When I signed in today to start filling my cart for this Friday the website remembered what I ordered last time and had it towards the top of the list. The selection was great. They also seemed to have just about everything they offer in the store.

Any guesses at how much this may have cost me? You know to have someone wonder through the store on my behalf and pick out the 6 different yogurts I wanted, find the soy sauce, track down where the big tortillas are- then load it in a van and drive it to my house to be carried to my door. $15 $10… IT WAS FLIPPING FREE!!! If you spend more than $100 it is free. If you spend less than $100 it costs $5.

Which on the days that I wake up to realize we are out of milk for my 2 1/2 year old, I will gladly pay $5 for someone to bring a gallon of milk to my house. If it avoids having to drag two little boys to the grocery store, I am in! Or trying to squeeze swinging by the store into an already busy workday, money well spent!!

I have also spent the last few days dreaming about all the other times this will come in handy. How about those days we are having a little gathering of friends at our house for a party. Wouldn’t it be great if the groceries for that party all just magically showed up at my doorstep? I could use those hours that day to help prep for the party or maybe just maybe, shower and be ready and enjoying a glass of wine as my guests arrive rather than running around with my head cut off.

Please I beg you, don’t shuffle this idea off for another day. Check it out here, today, tonight… glass of wine optional. 🙂

**Special thanks to my friend Jennifer Robertson for sharing this with our playgroup weeks ago. You rock! Another special thank you to our sweet Annmarie Jamar for encouraging me to actually try it. You are terribly good at nudging me towards things that all around better my world! 🙂

I’ve trampled through the homes in Brookside currently available under $250,000. It is not pretty. Many are small and “unique”. The house I just listed at 6021 Oak Street is not perfect but man does it have square footage and tons of pluses. Over 2,000 square feet and an expandable attic that gives the ability to add an additional 4th bedroom or make a dream master suite.

Another hard to find attribute under $250,000 in Brookside? How about that 2 car garage with private drive OR the second full bath?!!?! This house has both!

AND it is just an eight minute walk to the Brookside grocery store and shops! That is one of the priceless reasons, we all love Brookside so much! #WhyBrooksideMO

Let me know if you or a friend wants to take a look at it in person. #GreatBrooksideOpportunity

Is it your dream to live across the street from your BFF???

I have a friend (and her husband and sweet little girl) that I would love to live across the street from. We can call them Lori, Lenny and Emily. We often joke about buying houses next to each other or possibly a house that is so big that it had two wings (with each wing having its own fancy kitchen). We could carry the baby monitor across the street to sip wine and unwind after a long day. Or use our competitive husbands against each other by commenting on how nice Lenny’s yard looked. The sweet memories my boys would have running across the street to see if Emily and her little sister could play. The awesomeness of being able to dart out to the grocery store childless for 25 minutes while those little boys were playing at my BFF’s house.

Unfortunately, we have not found a house that meets the 2 wing criteria in our combined budget. I am going to keep dreaming of this massive mansion and will likely start seriously hounding the neighbor across the street to move away…

I just listed a gorgeous house in Romaneli Gardens and the house across the street came up for sale too. Although I am a little partial to my listing at 612 W 70th Terrace (so many great updates: kitchen, master bath, windows, HVAC) the house across the street at 609 W 70th Terrace is pretty cute too. It would be a great setup for a gal to live across the street from her BFF.

612 W 70th Terrace 3 bedrooms 2 1/2 bathrooms 2 car garage $385,000

612 W 70th Terrace

A number of adorable little ones on this street, too! Let me know if you and your BFF want a tour and/or to arm wrestle over who gets 612 W 70th Terrace. 🙂

421 W 58 Street , 444 w 58th Street and  414 W 58th Street would work well if you had two BFFs you REALLY wanted to have live your same block.

 

#WhyBrooksideMO – Area for reinvention & remodeling

I feel like I often come across three types of home buyers.

  1. The type that want a turn key, everything is updated and ready for a buyer to just move in personal belongings and enjoy.
  2. The type that want a house that is a bit of a blank slate and ready for the buyer to come in and make it all their on taste and just the way they want it. Whether that is new construction or completely remodeling the home top to bottom.
  3. The type that are tweakers and up for possibility of a few projects. They want something mostly done but that could have a few changes made to make it fit their style and likes. We are talking paint colors, light fixtures, new countertops/backsplash or possibly a bathroom remodel.

Something I adore about Brookside, MO… each of the above described buyers can find a house that meets their desires!! The area is made up mostly of homes a hundred years old give or take some years. So in many ways, the need to remodel and reinvent is necessary. 🙂 What is great is that the majority of the blocks and areas support someone buying a house at a decent price and then updating it to their likes without the risk of being greatly over invested. I find that the people looking for whole house projects or just your average house tweaking buyer can find a property to make their own. They open up walls for a better flow to the floorplan or reinvent bathrooms, create outdoor living spaces, uncover hardwoods and refinish them. The list just goes on and on. My husband and I really enjoy this process of reinventing homes. I find myself often looking at the after (showing ready) homes as works of art. I get so excited when I see how someone has completely broken down the needs of a kitchen, dining room and living room with each area being laid out perfectly for a night of entertaining or just a family week night dinner. I also get a kick out of trying to envision or figure out how to fix layouts that are just not quite right in the “before” homes. 🙂 There are a number of investors  that have the necessary potential return to come into Brookside and turn some severely neglected homes into fabulous addresses again. The buyers of those fabulous “flipped” addresses move into virtually new homes with everything updated often down to the homes electrical and plumbing systems. They also have a very good chance of being in a positive place in half a decade when they sell, as long as they stay on top of the home maintenance. The area has such a strong demand for nice updated move-in ready homes! So you see Kansas City’s suburb Brookside is perfect for any type of buyer. 😉 Here are a few exterior before and after photos of projects in the area.

Here’s some before and after photos of the interiors of a few of these homes: Brookside Remodels Before and After Interior Photos

Interested in a Brookside beauty? Feel free to email me at e@eSADY.com or text/call me at 816-200-7239. There are a handful of flipped projects that are nearing completion as well as a few that need a head to toe remodel or just a few tweaks that I would love to show you. 🙂
