My clients Brian and Jane came to me for help selling their mother’s home after she had recently passed away. The home had been neglected for many years and it required a lot of work to restore. But, it has a nice layout, is in a sought-after neighborhood and has access to excellent local schools.
The first thing I did was have my Project Manager, Debbie Nelson, walk through the home with our vendors to do bids on the work that needed to be done and to get a better idea of the scope of the project. After the initial walk through, Debbie collected bids from all of the vendors and presented each one to our clients. We were cautious to be mindful of our client’s budget while ensuring that all necessary work would be done to get the home ready for the market. Once the bids were approved we immediately started work on the house.
The home was filled with belongings and needed to be decluttered and deep cleaned. With my clients living out of the area, it was up to my team and I to sift through the items in the home and set aside valuables to be collected later on. After we emptied the house, we had an industrial clean done to prep the house for the rest of the work. We completely redid all of the flooring throughout the home, and painted the interior as well as the exterior of the home.
Debbie then went through the entire home and noted all necessary updates that needed to be done and created a shopping list for supplies. After purchasing all of the items, we had our handyman come in and do the installation.
We also had to do a lot of work on the exterior of the property. In addition to the fact that the landscaping needed updating, we also found quite a few items in the front and back yards that needed to be removed. The largest of which being a boat and a car, both needing to be sold or donated.
Once all of the work was done, we had the home staged and then it was ready for the market! This was a huge project, but from start to finish this project took three and a half weeks to complete.
