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 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.
