Hawthorne: SE 42nd


I wanted to see this home as the pictures looked great on line, and it sits back off Hawthorne a few blocks on a quiet street.  On arriving, I met one of the owners, and found that the home was a flip. I'm always leery of the quality of this type of remodel- after all a true homeowner has more of a vested interest in the longevity of their updates. Wonder as well where the room for profit is on such a venture at this time of the market.  They reconfigured the upstairs for two larger bedrooms, one clearly being the master, and cleverly put a pass through bath between the two.  Another bedroom is on the first floor, an office perhaps, or an older child? Always the challenge. The home does have a backyard and a garage, two big plusses.  With profit, $494,000
