1726 S. LA ROSA DRIVE, TEMPE




BEFORE
We bought this three bedroom/two bath house near ASU as a rental. The question was how much was too much to spend fixing it up?



PROGRESS
We weren't going to live there but I'm convinced that curb appeal gets 'em rented and so far, even with lots of rentals on the market, we've been right. Sandblasting was a starting point. My motto is "Everything but drywall is better without paint." Foreground walls and a dedicated pedestrian entry were next. The drapes are plastic shower curtains from Ikea.


La Rosa Fence
AFTER
The work in the back yard was less ambitious and the inside was mostly patching and paint. We spent $32,000. Call us if you'd like to do a curb appeal consultation for your own rental.
