How you live in a home and how it should be presented for sale are very different. Prospective buyers need to be able to see themselves living in your home. To create this environment, most homes need to be de-cluttered, cleaned, and staged. Some homes need to be refreshed with paint, new carpeting, and refinished floors, while others benefit from more major updates. It's all about Return on Investment. If a prospective seller invests $40,000 it can mean an increase in their sale price of $200,000 or more. I've done it many times and I can tell you how these changes might impact your home sale.
JUST A FEW OF OUR TROYER TRANSFORMATIONS™…
This property had a wonderful spacious yard, but when we took on the listing, the once well-looked-after garden was overgrown and in need of some care. We brought in our landscaper and after just three days of work, the yard looked beautiful and we were ready for the market!
This inviting home has a great floor plan and a great location close to downtown and tech companies. However, it was in need of upgrades before hitting the market. In a matter of weeks, we were able to make necessary changes and sell it for over the asking price!
This classic traditional home required numerous updates before we hit the market. Over the course of 6 weeks, we packed up the house, updated the kitchen, repaired flooring, installed a new garage door, painted, landscaped, cleaned, and staged. The results were beautiful.
This home featured a very unique design and panoramic views of the entire Silicon Valley. I worked with my project manager to oversee all repairs, cleaning, inspections, and necessary updates over a 3-week period. The house turned out beautifully!
We made it our goal to focus on the kitchen, master bathroom, and exterior to bring this home up to show quality. While being mindful of the budget and timeline, we performed necessary upgrades and fixed problems in areas that had been neglected.
My clients asked me to sell their mother's house in North Los Altos. The house was in good condition, but needed just over $40,000 worth of updates to bring it up to showing condition. In just 3 weeks, we completed the home prep and put it on the market with amazing results.
