My clients' children are off to college, so they were ready for their next adventure! We talked about the various options in preparing their home for sale – the pros and cons of selling the property “as-is” or preparing it at different levels to maximize potential. We went big and invested $108K to really make the home pop, which ultimately increased the property value by over $500k!

The Punch List:

  • Removed raised planter bed at foyer to modernize and increase space
  • Added new recessed and flush mount lighting
  • Replaced iron staircase railing with modern railing
  • Polished aggregate steps (previously covered with carpet)
  • Removed acoustic ceiling
  • Replaced all flooring to wide-plank European white oak & extended into kitchen
  • Reconfigured game room – built custom bench and modified plumbing
  • New interior painting throughout
  • New door hardware
  • Repaired skylight leak
  • Repaired multiple leaking toilet seals
  • New staircase chandelier
  • Replaced kitchen countertops with full backsplash
  • Painted kitchen cabinets, added new handles
  • New cooktop and refrigerator
  • Repainted exterior trim to neutral color
  • Replaced all the wood dividers between concrete pathway (removed tripping hazards)
  • Repaired sprinklers and installed new grass
  • Trimmed eucalyptus trees and cleaned up landscaping
  • Removed remaining personal property
