The school of house Knocks: The fresh home of Decatur
September 7, 2017

Now, this is a story all about how … my life got flipped, turned upside down. So, take a minute, just sit right there – I’ll tell you how I became a hot and fresh lair.

Check it: My previous family lived here for years. We had some good times, but in recent months, they dealt with some tough stuffNeedless to say, the family felt it was time to make some changes.

They opted to sell their house directly to Knock.

The Knock team came around, and noticed that there was a lot of work to do. Like, there was no way buyers would make solid offers if Knock put me on the market as-is. I needed a ton of stuff, like railings out front to keep people safe, and a new coat of paint to help me look fresh (get it?). In total, all of my repairs totaled around $10,000. That ain’t cheap.

Hold up, just watch this:

That’s right. Knock paid for everything upfront, and settled with my previous owner at closing. I was bummed to say goodbye to this family, but it felt great to see them move on stress-free.

And I’m not going to lie, I was psyched for my new repairs because they turned out to be a game changer. Seriously. After fixing me up, the Knock team took gorgeous photos of me and put up my listing.

Peep my new look:

Whew! I became one hot commodity, y’all. My listing was up for ONE WEEK, and BAM – an offer came through. And there's more! After Knock fixed me up and did all that good stuff, I sold for above asking price. YEP!
