THE RESTORE 818 “DESIGNER REBUILT” DIFFERENCE
Buying a cosmetic renovation is rolling the dice on a ticking time-bomb. Think that’s hyperbole? What else but a “time-bomb” of unexpected costs would you call a 50-year old house that’s been made to “look pretty” on the surface but still has 50-year old guts?
The top five hidden costs you must be aware of when buying a South Florida home built in the 60’s:
1. Cast iron sewer lines
2. Original electrical wiring
3. Filthy original or dated AC ductwork
4. Degraded original insulation
5. Dated or non-existent hurricane roof strapping.
These five hidden but critical systems are not only potential issues for the health and safety of your family; replacing them all will cost well over $100,000. Cast iron sewer lines (which have a 50-60 yr. life, do the math) will run $30k to $50k alone! Plus, many insurance companies are also charging you more every year because of the risks these old systems pose, so those are more hidden costs you’re probably not aware of.
With a Restore 818 Designer Rebuilt Home you can rest assured that all these systems have been updated with permits to current building codes. That’s the Restore 818 difference.
WHAT A LICENSED INTERIOR ARCHITECT & DESIGNER MEANS TO YOU
It’s not for everyone, but for those seeking a true designer home the value of this home is epic. If you want the real-deal in a professionally designed home you have options.
You could buy one of the supposed “renovated” or “remodeled” homes in the area. But if you’ve been looking at properties you probably already realize those homes are nothing more than bare-minimum surface renovations completed using Home Depot quality then loosely described in the MLS as “designer finishes.” But to fix design faux pas get ready to hire a professional Interior Designer and spend a minimum of $125,000 for finishes and fixtures alone without including the replacement of sewers, electric systems, etc. Yep that number is accurate, and actually is just a starting point for an entire home. We see it all the time with design clients of Studio 818.
The option — you can invest in a Restore 818 Designer rebuilt Home that has been professionally designed and rebuilt from its’ core. Are Restore 818 homes priced top of the market? Yes they are, justifiably so. The rebuild process described in the section above accounts for this premium value alone.
