Herman of Keller Williams Dallas Preston Road for $300,000.

Fresh paint, new floors, and new quartz countertops are among the many updates installed in 2018.  Just past the wrought-iron railed staircase is one of two dining areas that are welcoming and accessible in this open floor plan.

We love home before-and-after photos because there’s something just so satisfying about seeing a transformation (Scroll to the end for the photos; it’s worth it!). This home at 6713 Genoa Road in Fort Worth is no exception. Recently appraised at $355,000, this three-bedroom, three-bath, 2,028 square-foot home has been drastically reduced to $300,000! This 1975-built ranch style has been redone completely from top to bottom with the help of wonder-doer Blackwood Homes, which handled design, project management, and staging for this home listed by Laura Swearingen Realty Group.

As you walk in, you can see the many possibilities in this open floor plan with a large living area that flows into the dining area, kitchen, and breakfast nook. Plus Blackwood’s choice to stage with mid-century inspired furniture brings out the charm and style of this incredibly affordable home. (more…)
