18 Hidden Brook

18 Hidden Brook

18 Hidden Brook, Riverside, came out very well indeed. Smallish, and a small yard, but Hidden Brook, from a traffic sense, comes from nowhere and goes nowhere, so it’s a very quiet street. The finish work inside is top quality: performed by Doran Sabag under the watchful eye of Jim Hoffman* and, all in all, a very pleasant house. Excellent renovation and for this location in Riverside, $2.395 isn’t unreasonable.

*You must have left for lunch while Doran was painting, Jim, because the skylight trim in the studio bathroom was left in its primer undercoat. Send him back.

    Of the 31 photos, do half represent the house in its former self? Do photos of new self have rented-staged furniture in it? Nice home. The exterior has that certain drive-by look but if broker can get client inside….if. I’d be hard pressed to get past the exterior, but I’m a shallow sort to begin with.

    It will be very interesting to see if the ‘facial’ will justify paying $2.4 when they bought it fairly recently for $1.2. Riverside is hot – how hot – we’ll see..

    Seems reasonable for this area of Riverside.

    Just wondering
    How much must the house be worth to merit a professional photographer?

    Walked by it with the dog this morning. Zero curb appeal. I can see it now. Young upwardly mobile family from NYC pulls into the driveway and wife immediately begins crying at what they can afford in Riverside. Maybe the husband too. I know I/we would. And across the street you have its big brother at 3 times the price.

    But I am still pulling for them as I could use the comp.
