Today we wanted to share an example of a home remodel we had helped a seller with as they decided to move out of the area/South San Francisco. Have you ever wondered why home selling calculators such as Zestimates or Redfin Estimates are always inaccurate? Well, our job at OWN Real Estate and Wilson Leung and Associates is to help you make the right decisions when it comes to selling your home for a premium price in the market.
Some sellers value convenience over getting more money at the end of the day and that is fine. For a majority of sellers, getting the most money from the sale of their home is important.
We are excited to share the results at the Northcrest Residence. The sellers had moved out of state and needed help selling for the best price. Selling their home was a priority but convenience and project managing from out of state was not. We had met the sellers and gave recommendations of various parts of the home.
The Living Room
In the living room, we used simple tactics to gain dramatic results for resale:
- Installed new wood-like floors
- Painted all walls and ceilings
- Installed new recessed and accent lighting
- Installed new fireplace stone
- Removed window treatments for better sun exposure
Northcrest’s kitchen also saw dramatic results with traditional updates:
- Installed brand new stainless steel appliances
- Installed new hardwood floors
- Refinished cabinetry
- Installed marble designed quartz countertops
- Installed a new faucet and fixtures
- Installed polished hardware finishes
Northcrest already had a few recent updates with recelled lighting and the cabinets were in good condition. With some basic updates, this property became highly desireable amongst buyers who did not want to or have the means to do work.
