Are you a fan of contemporary houses? Even if you aren't, I bet our recent flip could change your mind! Check out the before & afters shots of this MILLION DOLLAR Seattle home we completely rehabbed!!!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Heaton Dainard

exterior seattle home

 

So over here at Heaton Dainard, we found an investor this property to flip, assisted with all financing (hard money loan), assisted our investor in creating an exit strategy and rehab plan, used our trusted contractors and stagers and had the house sold for top dollar before it even went on the market!  It sold for over a million, nearly double what it was purchased for before the rehab. Let us know what you think of the transformation. I'll be updating the blog with the exact number breakdown in the coming week, so stayed tuned in to Heaton Dainard's blog and learn more about our full-service flipping services.

Contemporary houses are becoming more and more sought after in Seattle.  I know it's common for real estate agents to say that contemporary houses sit on the market longer and are harder to sell, but it's not the case in Seattle.  Perhaps it's the influence of the tech industry in our backyard, but modern and contemporary design is becoming a favorite of home buyers in the Pacific Northwest.

Here are the before shots:

 

And let's take a look at the AFTER shots!

 

Active Rain community, I want to hear from you! Do you like contemporary homes? What do you think of our most recent flip?  What do you LOVE about our Laurelhurst project?

I have a very contemporary taste so naturally I love what you did with your flip! I am a huge fan of grey paint for interiors as well, so your project speaks to my heart :) Great job!

Totally flowing from outside to in.  Like that what you did with the existing stone fireplace.

This is a perfect example of a home that flows from outside to inside.  Really like what you did with the existing stone fireplace.

I love this house, makes me want to redo my own home.  I love the way you turned the outdated color choices and style into such a beautiful, clean , contemporary look.

 

I would love a home that looked like this...

A client asked if it is for sale?  Thinking it may be sold since you said it's a recent flip.

How much did it sell for?

You ruined an awesome orange mod original kitchen, among other things.  Shame!

Did you really reno this house - are these after photos real? They look incredibly fake.

It is the perfect contemporary inspiration to pull my house out of the 80's. Please, would share your use of materials for the wood and siding exterior as well as the gray paint colour? Cheers!
