About This Project

Neighborhood: Cleveland Heights

Who We Worked With: Estate Attorney & Client

We helped a probate client with an inherited property that was in disrepair. The home was in a historic but slightly run down neighborhood but with grand older homes ready for a renaissance. The heirs has grown up in this family home so there was some nostalgia from the descendants and much thought put into what they wanted to do with the property. The heirs were all living comfortably but without the interest to spend the time and $200,000+ it would take to fix all the structural issues to bring the home back to where they could sell it on the open market.

The heir-executor of the property called Bay Reach Homes and we were able to work out a home value based on comparable home sales in the neighborhood and the amount of repair costs necessary to remodel. In the end, we at Bay Reach Homes felt it was worth the cost, time and effort to bring back the charm in this house. The sellers were happy to get their inheritance out of the property quickly and hassle-free.

According to estate executor and son Leonard Gee, “We were very happy with what Bay Reach Homes did with the family home. They did a great job bringing the house back to its original glory.”
