Welcome to the Drummond Flip House!

If you follow me on Instagram you have seen that big renovations are already underway, however I wanted to take everyone on a full tour of the home and highlight some of the changes we will be making. I will be going more in depth with each project as we delve further into the flip.

I worked with Mary from Toledo Home Tours to capture these before pictures and they look great! These photos make the house look like it is in a lot better condition than it is and continue to support the my argument that everyone should hire a professional photographer when they sell their house.
