Benjamins Realty Inc. recently sold an executive townhome on the edge of Waterloo after only one day on the market. This property had been for sale previously but was not attracting enough attention from potential Buyers. The Seller was frustrated and realized they needed to make a change. After consultations with Benjamins Realty and the design team at Rooms in Bloom, a targeted renovation plan was put in place and the property sold for $23,000 more than what it had listed for previously.
If you’re having trouble selling your home consider a renovation…
but before you do call Benjamins Realty. We specialize in identifying key concerns in a home that may be preventing a Buyer from seeing the true value of your property. When we met with our client after their disappointing first-run at selling, we had a frank discussion about the importance of presenting a coherent presentation to potential Buyers. We identified some key areas the owner could focus on to improve the presentation of their home. Benjamins Realty recommended key trade partners to work with. After new flooring was installed, a professional paint job, new light fixtures and an updated kitchen, the transformation was complete.
We hear it more often than ever, a Buyer is looking for a home to wow them, they want to be inspired. HGTV streams images into our homes of beautiful kitchens, spa-like bathrooms, and outdoor living rooms. As a Seller, it’s never been more important to capitalize on this type of demand.
After a two-week whirlwind renovation, the Seller came out ahead by $7,000 with the increased value of the sale price versus renovation costs. They sold their property in 1 day to a Buyer who had been through previously. The Seller also turned away multiple other disappointed Buyers. The sale price was $23,000 more than the list price prior to the renovations.
