Here's a quick note to let you know how I can help you or anyone you might introduce to me.
Denise and Michael's home had been on the market for eight months when their listing expired and a friend referred them to me. Their home was in a great neighborhood of $300,000-$425,000 houses, but their place needed about $20,000 worth of cosmetic work — carpeting, interior painting and lighting fixtures. A nice-looking house from the outside was disappointing people once they got inside!
I pointed out that sometimes there are advantages in not doing improvements, since buyers often move in and make their own changes. Instead, we marketed the home at "$265,000 plus $20,000 of cosmetic work = a $285,000 home in a $300,000-$425,000 neighborhood," and the advertising included information about written estimates for the work to be done at the $20,000 price. The house sold in three days, and Denise and Michael had that $20,000 to spend on their next home!
