Prospective home sellers frequently ask what is the best way to maximize their home's eventual sales price? Many are surprised to learn they can double their pre-MLS listing fix up investment by doing some common sense updates and improvements BEFORE listing their homes. See our client marketing plan. Sure, having access to quality cost effective cosmetic contractors (we can help offer our recommendations) helps to keep your budget in check, but let me share this recent example of an ARG client we listed and sold last year.
To Access SOLD Listing Link Below Users Must Create a FREE Account Via CONNECT LOGIN
This Allen Preowned Home was originally going to be listed around $225K as it needed a lot of cosmetic attention when we first visited (to view SOLD listings on above link you will need to create a FREE account first. Look for RED Connect / Login BAR on the right). We explained that a home in this location that is cosmetically "dialed-in" can easily be listed as high as $249,900 or well above the neighborhood's highest COMPS. Our clients decided to put our theory to the test and invest $20,000 to fix up their home. That $20,000 investment transformed their listing from O.K average to A+. My clients added new laminate floors in all areas save for the bedrooms, but replaced carpet as well. Then repainted in and out, replaced their fence, changed hardware, faucets to Oil Rubbed Bronze, added a new kitchen backsplash and remodeled their Master-bath. AC was replaced a year before.
Our Client's home SOLD for $265K doubling their fix up budget of $20K. We had multiple offers in 48 hours and the buyer we selected gave a written guarantee to honor the contracted sales price they offered regardless of appraisal. View SOLD Comp report to see actual SOLD prices.
Needless to say, all the neighbors must have loved this seller for helping them raise neighborhood comps. This client also got a FREE MOVE-UP which saved them THOUSANDS in commissions. Our business goal is to help you net more while saving you the most money possible.
At ARG, we strive to offer the DFW public an amazing cost advantage, by discounting our FULL SERVICE agent cost to you. We never discount what the buyer agent earns when they bring us an acceptable offer. Our DFW New Home Move-up offer with a 95% success rate speaks for itself. Check out our Testimonials and call us if you are wanting to work with a Realty Agency that "gets it" about offering advanced professional listing services without the high cost.
