I fell in love with this house a few months back when it was up for sale. It was this picture of the fireplace/wood panel combo that did it for me. When the house sold so quickly, I assumed the buyer really loved the house and its mid-century appeal.

Fast forward to yesterday, Keith links me to a house that came on the market. (we are into looking at new listings for fun) He goes, "this home has nice bones, looks like it can be cool".... so I look at it, and it looks so familiar.... I remind him about that cool house I saw a while back, and notice it's on the same street.
I find the old listing and show it to him. It's the same address! They flipped it! They took down the wood paneling and granite/stainless steel-ized the kitchen. Who do they think they are? oh and they are
asking 305k more than their purchase price back in October. At least they kept the fireplace.

Why do people feel like granite and stainless steel instantly make a house better? It's totally played out and kind of tacky to me.
