The house at the end of our rowhouse strip (no idea what else to call this) had been vacant for years. The story is a few years ago a couple purchased it, gutted it, and ran out of money or whatever. Now, it has been fully renovated (it's pretty lovely inside) and it got an addition of about 600 square feet, so it's about 30% bigger than our house now. But, here's the deal...it's selling for 45% more than what we paid for our house. While I think ours has a little ways to go to match this new renovation (our bathrooms need a make-over!), things are looking up for the value of homes in the neighborhood!
Anybody else gone through this shift?
