A Peak into the Design Plan of our Raleigh Flip

This house is a split level. It is actually the first split level we have had the opportunity to renovate. The design has been a challenge, but exciting to take on. Split levels often lend themselves well to more modern designs, which is why we named this house “The Modern Split”. Key elements we are inclined to incorporate into the design are a more narrow board and batton siding, horizontal stained wood accents, assymetrical elements, and either clean and white with dark accents, or bold contrast 

Crisp white combined with large, dark house numbers and incorporating horizontal wood elements, like the planter box shown above. is one option …

– or –  

Bold contrasting colors. The dark grey combined with the light grey in the top right picture, along with the wood elements seen in the bottom right picture adequately give a visual for what the outcome of this exterior elevation may be. 

Bringing in some of the antique brass once again to this project. Clean lines, cool greys, mixed with warm woods and classic shapes will be a nice combination. 

These are the lights selected for the main living space, which will include two pendants over the island, an entry light (the honeycomb fixture) and a dining light. This dining room light (from West Elm) will help to tie the antique brass and matte black hardware together. 

The open layout will lend itself well to entertaining. The kitchen will have white and grey shaker cabinets, a herringbone backsplash as seen below and quartz countertops. Some of the hardware will also be antique brass, bringing together the style of the light fixtures. 

Either outside on the porch or inside on the small section of stairs, the plan is to have a more modern railing. 

Currently, we are in the planning process of built-ins for the front entry. A drop zone, such as seen above will be instrumental to the functionality of this house. 

On another note … we have great news!!

We have passed all rough-in inspections for the city of Raleigh!!!

This is when the fun part begins! Get ready to see lots of visual changes to the Modern Split in the coming days! Stay tuned and be sure to follow us on instagram @theinspiringinvestment and visit our Facebook page!

Liz had a great experience with us… 

“The circumstances that led to the selling of the family home were complicated and exhausting. Working with The Inspiring Investment was such a delight because everything went as planned. From the initial meeting to the house closing, Uriah’s frequent communication kept us all in the loop. Uriah worked hard to make sure there were no surprises. I whole heartedly recommend this group to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.”

Why some people don’t sell…

The most common problem people have when trying to sell a house is the relationship between the condition of their home and the price a buyer is willing to pay – even in the current market. Most people who are looking for a house, want a house that needs no work. If a house has not been well maintained it will affect the price you can sell it for, and in many cases, effect the potential buyer’s ability to get financing. We buy houses in ANY condition. We take care of the deferred maintanence and necessary updates. We can pay cash and close quickly with minimal headaches.

Selling on MLS can be stressful and you may have to put more money into your house so it will sell…

New disclosure laws (TRID) have slowed a traditional home sales down even more than before. It used to drag on for months to close and now you can add another month to that! When selling a home, often you have to go through and fix everything in your house, deal with weeks or months of showings, then have a buyer come and ask you to fix another 50 items the home inspector dug up. We won’t do that. You will not be required to make any repairs… and we can even close in as little as 48 hours after contracts are signed.

We can pay CASH for your house – and fast – or as slow as you need to!

No matter the condition, from the prettiest to the ugliest, we will take your house problems away – and we will work with you in your specific situation.
