We had a large, empty outdated duplex... and a $5,000 budget.
My partner and I really stress doing everything possible to present a property at it's best. We have to help clients make very tough decisions and advise where to put a very finite commodity; money. Will the money spent and decisions made pay-off in a faster sale for top dollar? What we do know -in most cases- something HAS to be done.
Here's a few before and afters from a 2000 square foot Southport Corridor condo we just sold after a couple months on the market. The home was built in 1995 and the finishes were mostly original. So, the rest of the home would have to look and feel brand new to attract today's buyer. We didn't have a ton of resources...
The living room ceilings were 20ft high and the whole home needed painting. We knocked out the full listing preparation and staging in a weeks time.
We take great care in devising a complete plan for preparing, listing and showing the property. Then we work hard to implement it.
