This house in Vermont-Slauson is currently decked out with granite counters, travertine tiles, and Carrara marble, but just a few months ago its amenities included filthy mattresses! broken crack pipes! and Hepatitis, probably! The house sold in September for $130,000 and, judging by these "before" photos, got a very thorough makeover--in addition to all the pricey finishes, there are also new wood floors, a rebuilt garage, new windows, and fresh landscaping in the front and backyards. The 1922 house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It's asking $229,000 and listing agent David Kahenasa tells us it's already in escrow, with four backup offers above asking waiting in the wings.
