Our Newly Renovated Rental Property

We were asked to renovate a rental property in the Byram, Mississippi, area. It was the biggest project we’ve taken on so far. The previous renters did severe damage to the house (inside and out) and by the looks of things, it was never cleaned. When I first saw the property, I knew what Lisa would do when she got there and she did just what I thought – put on gloves and started cleaning. I call her the white tornado because when she’s ready to get after it, all you can do is get out of her way.  We took it one step at a time getting this place ready to go on the market.

In this video, Lisa quickly shows you the property “before” (well, it was actually after we started putting paint on the walls and got a ton of cleaning done), but then we show you the completed project.

Along the way, as with all estimates on any home improvement needs, we stayed in constant contact with the homeowner getting her “go ahead” before any add-ons or change orders to her original requests/contracted estimate. That is why we did NOT add new flooring to this property – that one addition was going to blow her budget, and so I did do a thorough cleaning of the concrete floors.

If you want to get your home ready for the market, Lisa also stages homes using what the homeowner already has and works within the budget. She has staged 11 properties, and while working with some great homeowners and outstanding realtors, all the properties have been in contract or sold in less than 1 week. If you need her or us to help get your rental or residential properties ready for the market, we’re here to help.

And as always, any home improvement need you have, Interior Inspirations, LLC is a licensed, bonded, insured and equipped company to meet your requests. You can call me (Rip) at 601-951-0400 or Lisa at 601-951-3212 – or you can email us at lisa@myinteriorinspirations.com

Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you,
