But if any of our investors have ever purchased or rehabbed an older home with a historical committee, then you're probably familiar with what kind of obstacles we had with this property!

Tragically Tacky Turned Treasured Home - Oklahoma City Market Turnkey Transformation

Posted by Chris Clothier on Tue, Aug 14, 2018

If you're like most people, you can probably remember a time when you made a 'bold' decorating decision. Sometimes they work, and sometimes these design choices are a little too far out, even for the most artistic of interior designers!  Every once and a while at Memphis Invest, we find some really unique touches to the houses we acquire. I wanted to share today's 'Turnkey Transformation', where the previous owner wasn't afraid of color, and the bathroom vanity might be a little too vain for some!

"The Rebirth of Downtown Memphis — It's hot. It's hip. It's back. Here's how the Bluff City recaptured its heart and soul."

You could read that headline in any publication today, but you might be surprised to know that it first appeared in Memphis magazine twenty years ago in 1997. At the time, the Pyramid was a new fixture in the city. A baseball park was under construction at Union and 3rd. There were rumors of a Hard Rock Cafe coming to Beale Street.
