Hundreds of smaller projects have been completed over the last year. Yet, the remaining projects are significant, and they are ongoing. As the projects progress to completion, their cost will be incorporated into the listed price of the property. As it stands, significant discounts were applied to the listing price to accommodate the end user that might want to save money on their next home purchase in exchange for doing the work at their own convenience.
