When I am hired to sell a home, the first thing I need to determine is whether or not the owner wants to get the most money out of the sale. Some do and some simply want to move on. My listing at 5081 Fallhaven Lane will be closing next week…. there were bumps in the road but we persevered and sold the home $150,000 over the asking price. So here’s a run-down of the before and after of this La Canada listing.
The first order of business was landscape spruce up to maximize curb appeal: we filled in the rocks, added mulch, general clean up.
We had the property inspected and made some plumbing and electrical repairs. We ordered new light fixtures and had them installed.
We had built-in cabinets removed from the dining room and master bedroom. Then we painted – during the course of painting, the painter discovered mold. We had to hire a mold company and during the course of abatement a cabinet needed to be removed. We replaced carpet and hired a staging company to create an inviting setting that potential buyers could envision themselves living in.
