Creating The Perfect Shore Home

Many people are coming to the shore looking for a home that is in "move in ready" condition. Unfortunately, these homes are few and far between.

Another new alternative is to buy a home in your location of choice and have this home renovated or modified to meet your needs.
Here's a great example:

This is 104 N. Clermont Avenue in Margate. When it came on the market in November, it was anything but "move in" condition. Priced right, the home was purchased by Remarkable Renovations, a company owned by the creative and talented developer Debra Buchalski. Remarkable Renovations specializes in home remodeling, design and restorations. Immediately after purchasing the home, Ms. Buchalski created plans to reconstruct and modify the existing house to include the features demanded by most of today's Buyers.
104 N. Clermont was then put back on the market in mid-November priced at $525,000, using plans and architectural designs that included highly popular features such as a first floor master suite, a large front porch, totally renovated eat-in kitchen w/granite counter tops and renovated bathrooms, a fenced yard with enclosed outdoor shower, cedar impression vinyl siding, hardwood floors and attached garage. The house was schedule for completion by Spring 2009.
The house went under contract in 20 days!

Construction is going well and since the Buyers made their decision to purchase this home during the early stages of the renovation, they are able to be a part of the selection process for the home.

104 N. Clermont Ave, is scheduled to be completed by April 15, 2009.

This is just one example that there is more than one way to find the right home to suit your needs.
Sometimes, it is best to find the home in the right location and determine if it can be fixed affordably. Sometimes all you need is a little bit of imagination and vision.
Stay tuned for more updates!
