real estate project 2005
Prepare home for sale
  •  Appraisals at the time came in well below market value. With an almost non existing budget, the home was outdated, but in extremely excellent and clean condition. It was in a upcoming and desirable neighborhood and homes in the area were well over $160k. With a bit of painting, staging, we went from a $42k appraisal price, to a sold price of $105k in less than 60 days.
