Amongst US cities, Boston has some of the oldest housing stock. We're always on the hunt for properties with undeveloped potential. With proper care and attention, they make great homes for the next generation of students and professionals in Boston.
In many cases, we need to reinforce the foundation, turn the basement space into living space to increase living square footage, or do structural work to ensure that the new building is up to the latest standards.
Exterior work is usually the biggest return on investment. A nice outdoor area, a frictionless access to the backyard, and an airy balcony makes a huge difference to the look and feel of a property. We also add parking spaces to the property whenever possible.
Along with our partner architects, we work to optimize the layout of older homes. Many older homes lack ensuite bathrooms and open floor plans, and have small living areas. We create better layouts that fit the modern lifestyle, install modern HVAC systems, and update cabinetry and vanities.
