Any RE purchase has to be looked at w/ expert artistic eyes-

Postby JGropp » Thu Aug 12, 2010 4:16 pm

We’ve had this discussion before.- and it’s worth having again.
Any Real Estate purchase has to be looked at with expert artistic eyes-
not just a cold calculating Real Estater's eyes highly predjudiced against
an allegedly “obsolete” style such as Mid-Century Modern..

When I as a long-time residential architect, evaluate a home (hopefully
before the sale goes through), I consider what kind of a home we’ll wind
up with, how it might suit the prospective owners & how they’ll live in it.

my very few teardowns have had some good results-

Postby JGropp » Fri Aug 13, 2010 10:58 am

I've not done many teardowns
in my time- but here's one that
resulted in a very nice waterfront
home replacing the ratty old one
that had been there. It later sold
for 4.5M. Click the Link below J-
