This post is titled with the word “renew” and not “renovation” because for this rental unit project not much was done to the kitchen, just a quick kitchen flip including a fresh coat of paint and flooring. But from the state that this place was in, those two small tasks made a world of difference aesthetically.
So my boyfriend (of over 2 yrs) bought a house. He had been looking for a multi-unit home for months and months, and then suddenly he had bought one. I had given up on accompanying him to countless showings months before.
It was frustrating as it always seemed what he was looking for was changing. First he wanted a single family home so he could have roommates, then it ended up that he was looking for a multi-unit building.
So no, I did not know he had put in an offer, and no I hadn’t had the privilege of hearing or seeing the place. This told me all I needed to know about it. In other words, it couldn’t be good.
