Are we Crazy?

We love to renovate houses.  We’ve done it lots of times – including a 1790’s colonial farmhouse in Maryland, an Arts and Crafts home in New Jersey and a Georgian mansion in Maine.  Our kids can’t remember life without a shop vac in plain sight.  This is a passion that we want to indulge.

But can we make a business of it?  We’ve quit our jobs, moved to Maine and are giving it a try.  We started SoPo Cottage LLC and are looking for the perfect property to get started.

And we thought we’d chronicle our adventures.  We look forward to sharing our experience and hearing your thoughts (and hopefully encouragement) along the way.

  1. This is going to be a sweet place. Cann't wait for you to finish it. The spring market is going to be strong. Interest rates are low and many sellers understand the importance of pricing their property correctly based on the condition. I met with 3 sellers this week and 4 different buyers. Don't let the snow fool you, people are shopping for houses.

  2. Wow, sounds like the real estate market is starting to heat up already - and we just got our first snow! Maybe the spring market will be starting early.
