Every home has a story

{Featured Story} – This home was purchased from a home owner who had gotten behind on payments, and was in foreclosure, with the sheriff sale now counting down the time until they needed to move out. During the redemption period, our team was able to purchase the property for cash, give the owner some money and time to relocate to a new home, and then jump in to a complete renovation and update of the home.

{Our Process for this Featured Property}: From top to bottom this house was re-created with a brand new kitchen and bathroom, all new carpeting, fresh paint throughout and a few surprise features along the way. The property hit the market in the beginning of spring, and the open house had excited buyers coming through, with bunches of showings the first week.

This neighborhood is just one of the really cool things about this property. It’s a quite country setting just seconds away from all the conveniences of the city, and with a wide open view of nature and wildlife the kitchen and dining room offer views day and night.

{Featured Story} – This condo was purchased from the estate of the new owner’s parents and refurbished with trendy new touches. There were no close comparables in the Farmington neighborhood with within walking distance to the urban downtown area, so the approach for selling was to create an entirely new set of comparables when the new owner was found. On the market for just days, the renovation, marketing and finishing touches made this a highly sought after, and quick to sell property at top dollar, establishing a new trend in the neighborhood.

{Our Process for this Featured Property}: Assessed the initial investment condo, offered suggestions for rehab and renovation. Assisted with Color Theory through color selection and process (no beige in this condo!). Helped select floor and counter materials, tile selection and features in the kitchen and bath. Final staging of the property was done with antiques and housewares, and created a cozy and lived in feel. As a final touch, a party was thrown when the property was completed to invite in friends and family, as well as an open house with freshly baking chocolate chip cookies to make the prospective buyers feel right at home!

{Outcome} This property sold in days as a cash sale, at a higher price than anything in the neighborhood – and closed quickly. Both the seller and buyer were thrilled with this transaction!
