My two clients came to me to sell their mother’s house in North Los Altos. We were tasked with decluttering, cleaning, assisting in donating/selling various pieces of furniture, and completely updating the home. This home is located in one of the most sought-after locations in all of Los Altos, but required just over $40,000 worth of updates to be able to compete with comparable properties in the area. The house had not been updated in many years, so we went through and painted, industrial cleaned, recarpeted, refinished hardwood flooring, updated bathrooms and the kitchen, and did extensive electrical work.
In just 3 weeks, we were able to complete all necessary updates and have the home staged and ready for the market. After all of the work, it came out beautifully! It was on the market for just one week before selling with multiple offers at $539,000 above the asking price.
Sold with multiple offers in 6 days $539,000 over asking
