When our seller approached us and said that he was willing to do anything to get the most value out of his apartment before listing, we knew we had the opportunity to shine.

A kitchen makeover, new tub and fixtures, a fresh coat of paint, the right furniture and some beautiful photography - all done for under $5K - resulted in a flurry of offers (more than 10% over ask) and a closing price of $30K more than what any previous unit in the line had sold for.

So what contributed to the perfect storm?

  1. A little reno goes a long, long way
  2. Priced accurately to get the most foot traffic
  3. Tasteful staging
  4. Availability to show at ALL times (8am to 8pm)
  5. Lightning fast responsiveness (less than one hour) with potential buyers
