$128,000 Investment
$350,000 Increase in Property Value

Practice what you preach! This was one of our investment properties and after owning it for over a decade, the decision was made to sell and venture into other real estate opportunities. The property, showing signs of age, required a makeover. Faced with two choices, we could either sell it as-is, allowing a buyer to take on the improvements, or invest the effort to present the property in its best light for the target buyer and command the highest possible price. Given its status as a starter-type property, potential buyers often have limited funds for renovations. However, by making the property turnkey, buyers could secure financing for a higher purchase price and attain the move-in-ready home they desire. Opting for maximum value, we undertook a comprehensive interior renovation, transforming this 1,170-square-foot home into a stunning masterpiece worthy of a magazine feature!
