108K Investment
>$500K Increase in Property Value

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!

  • Removed raised planter bed at foyer to modernize and increase space
