When Lightbox Homes began in the home renovation space, it catered mostly to real estate investors, real estate agents, and property management groups. Lightbox Homes built a great reputation with investors and agents by providing an easy way for them to renovate an investment home with very little effort from the property owner. They could trust Lightbox homes to get the job done right and make the home look beautiful.
Due to the overwhelming requests from local homeowners, Lightbox homes has now expanded to Lightbox Home Renovations, offering professional home renovations and remodeling expertise to local homeowners (not just investors).

Here are a few additional details from the business owners, Stephen and Lena:
Question: “Why did Lightbox Homes move into the Home Renovations space?”
Answer: (Stephen & Lena): “Whenever our team would go into a residential neighborhood and remodel a home, the neighbors always took notice of what we were doing. They watched closely as we replaced the siding, painted the home, added new windows, replaced the roof, added a new sunroom, replaced the cabinets, added granite countertops, or other renovations. The neighbors would always ask us to come over to their homes and give them a quote on remodeling.
We received daily requests when we were in the neighborhood remodeling a home on their street. It made sense for us to add home renovations to our business and offer this to local homeowners.”
Question: “What do you love about home renovations? Why did you decide to expand your business to work directly with homeowners?”
Answer: (Stephen & Lena): “We loved working with our investors, but at the end of the day, we realized that what we loved the most was renovating the homes and seeing the beautiful transformations. The best part of the whole project is the final reveal when the homeowners get so excited to tour their home and see all of the improvements. After a big remodeling job, like a kitchen or bathroom, we love to see how happy the homeowner is with the work we completed.”
Question: “What kind of home renovation work do you like to do? What kind of home remodeling jobs should people call you about?”
Answer:(Stephen & Lena): “We want to be known as the Home Remodeling Expert in Atlanta. People can call us for help with kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, basement finishing, new porches, screened-in porches, patios, sunroom additions, new roofs, siding, sidewalks, driveways, fences, or retaining walls.

If you've bought a property from OpenDoor over the last few years, you're probably happy with your purchase and location, but you've also probably got a home renovation to-do list a mile long.
The good news is, that your smart buying decision also came with the power to invest in those home improvement to-dos. Shall I go on?
One of the biggest trends in real estate currently is the emergence of powerful iBuyers like OpenDoor, Zillow Homes, Orchard, OfferPad, RedfinNOW and Knock. These powerful tech companies made a name for themselves as Disrupters, changing the rules of the real estate buying and selling game to make buying or selling a house as easy as shopping at Amazon for a new toaster oven.
The iBuyers use their deep cash reserves to buy houses in good condition but with somewhat dated layouts or finishes, in the middle of the market's price range. They then lightly renovated them, installing new flooring and painting the interior, before re-listing at a slightly higher price. They rarely repaired any of the major systems in a house.
With housing inventory at historical lows these last few years, many home buyers leaped at the chance to buy a house -any house- at a discount, as compared to fully renovated homes in the same neighborhood. The iBuyers' prospects soared while the buyers of those homes got instant equity in their slightly-better-than-fixer-upper homes.
Many iBuyer homes may look pretty in new flooring and paint, but may also come with electrical, plumbing, mechanical & roofing systems that are grinding out the end of their lifespan. If you’ve bought a home from an iBuyer like OpenDoor, you probably know what I mean.
Also, most iBuyers never put a cent into updating the property's layout, leaving many buyers with compartmentalized living rooms covered in wood paneling, uncomfortably tiny master bathrooms clad in pink tile, claustrophobic galley-style kitchens without modern amenities like disposals, musty partially-finished basements, and weathered outdoor entertaining spaces in need of a re-boot.
Thankfully, the lower price of a home bought from OpenDoor or OfferPad compared to fully-renovated homes in the neighborhood gifted buyers with a powerful ally in the renovation of their house: Equity.
For example, in our family's Atlanta neighborhood near Lakeside High School, houses bought in 2021 from OpenDoor often sold for $150k-$200k less than fully-renovated comparable properties, creating instant equity for our new neighbors.
The way it works is, if you invest in renovating your house, you can realize the value of the other renovated houses in the neighborhood; to sell or for the sheer joy of enjoying a fully-renovated house with open-concept living and dining areas, bigger master suites, fully-finished basements, and beautiful outdoor entertaining areas.
If you have bought a house from OpenDoor or any other iBuyer in the last four years, you're probably about ready to make the space your own, and Light Box would be happy to assist.
Remember: We built our experience on renovating and flipping old houses, so we are uniquely positioned to recognize your home's character, charm...And challenges, and we competed with OpenDoor for houses, so we know what they're delivering to their buyers, too: Paint and carpet.
Whenever you're tired of that old paint and carpet, call Light Box and let's open up those walls, create that perfect entertainer's kitchen, expand the master bath, and give the kids a place downstairs to play while the adults socialize in a new screened-in porch.
Your OpenDoor house is a blank canvas with the money needed to renovate it built in. Call us to learn how we can turn that blank canvas into a masterpiece of home living design!
