Over the last several years we have seen the bar raised in Buyers expectations. My theory is that during the real estate crash, many homes were purchased by investors that rehabbed the property and “flipped” the homes. These completely remodeled homes came on the market in a direct competition with owner occupied properties. When you step into a home that has brand new carpet, new paint, updated kitchen & sometimes baths, then you go to show your prospective buyer a home that has dirty dishes in the sink, stained carpet, dirty baths and in desperate need of interior and exterior paint, its easy to assume who is going to get the higher offer.
If you follow my monthly West Valley Market report, you have heard me say this over and over, the homes that come on the market, “staged and priced right” sell quickly, while others sit and continue to reduce their price. This has created what we in the industry call a “spread” in market values of the same properties. When completing a Market Analysis of the same comparable properties we find some selling much less than others with upgrades and updates. Over the past few years, I have presented my sellers with 2 to 3 Market Values based on the upgrades they are willing to complete prior to market. We have had the pleasure of seeing a tremendous return for our sellers, putting thousands more in their pockets at closing!
With that said, we decided to give our sellers an even bigger advantage in this extremely competitive market. We have gathered industry professionals from handymen, painters, general contractors, cleaning pros, to granite/quartz installers and even flooring to bring discounted rates to help you get top dollar for you home! That may sound over whelming, not to worry, the process is way easier than you might expect. We will let you know what needs to be done to the property in order to maximize the sales price as well as have our partners facilitate the work!
Check out this property with Before and After pics. Our client was able to take $10,000 from her Home Equity line and fix up the property. This $10,000 investment, netted her an additional $28,000 in her pocket at closing! Even better, we sold in 4 days on the market, full price CASH!
