With prices so high now, everyone knows that it’s smart to fully upgrade your house before selling – at least when possible. But not many sellers do, so buyers get as close as they can and then deal with the rest. My general rule-of-thumb still applies – expect to spend another $25,000 to $50,000 for upgrading any house you buy!
We are happy to assist our buyers with those upgrades too!
Here are photos of a newer but normal tract house that our buyer thought needed some pizzazz, so Donna coordinated the work before our buyer moved to town.
The TV was on a large, barren wall, and adding an electric fireplace gave it a traditional feel. But instead of installing it flush, let’s build it out to add some dimension:
This electric appliance kicks out steady heat and has 50+ color combinations!
The kitchen had an off-white antique finish to the cabinets, which looks dirty after a few years. Let’s paint those light gray, change the cabinet pulls, add some modern stools, class up those pendant lights, and install a built-in fridge too:
The master bathroom was base grade:
Let’s ditch the basic wall mirror/medicine cabinet and combo them up instead – with lighting!
How about this new closet by Top Shelf Pull Outs for about $6,500!
Note to self – always take two photos in case someone has their eyes closed!
Donna is THE magic sauce!!! What she delivers to the entire home buy-sell gauntlet-process is just so unheard of. I’ll never ever use another agent because of it. Thank you, Donna!!!
Very smart and good looking improvements! These small changes alone have probably already added to this house’s equity value!
Great job Donna!
Thank you BAM and Eddie89 – you are both making me blush!
I love to help you make a house “your home”!
Jim and I have worked with many contractors for many years and have had lots of opportunities to carefully vet them and we keep doing this over and over again to ensure they deliver quality work at a competitive price.
We are both committed to making the home buying and selling process as easy and stress-free as possible for anyone who chooses to work with us. When it comes right down to it – we know this is one of the most important decisions an individual makes – who to choose as their realtor to help the navigate this journey.
It is truly an honor to help anyone during this time so yes we may go above and beyond but it seems like the right thing to do.
