"Fixer- Upper Heaven"
Their home is one of my favorites I’ve sold in Kailua! And hands down one of the best deals I’ve seen in years in the area. If all of my clients had their vision, sense of adventure, and desire for a fixer upper I’d be in heaven!
Their transaction was full of surprises, from the appraiser flagging their foundation (what is 5 inches off really a big deal?!) to their being a possible cesspool - Thankfully there wasn’t! Oh and a surprise at the closing table… make sure you read your closing docs people.
The entire time, the Bakers kept their focus on the end game, the potential of what their home could be. It was fun living vicariously through them, and helping them space plan, interview contractors, create a light design, and give input on the new kitchen layout!
Even more fun are the weekly update calls and visits to their home, as the drama of remodeling a home in Hawaii, is everything you’ve heard rumored.
But their laid back personalities have helped them make the most of it. I’m convinced they’ve created a nice little nest egg for themselves with their investment. We can’t wait to see their home in a month when they’ve moved in.
Oh and maybe we can convince them to give a little class on remodeling tips and tricks on everything from permits to the pitfalls of home renovations in Kailua!
Mahalo guys for allowing us to help your sweet family find a little slice of paradise!
