Today I wanted to share a story about a client who had questions for us about the best way to make upgrades to their property. More specifically, they wanted to know what would give them the biggest bang for their buck.

A couple of months ago, some sellers who lived in the middle of Virginia approached me about selling their property for the most money possible. I visited the home and saw that it was pretty distressed and in need of a lot of repairs. I was able to recommend my contractor, and in six weeks, we put the property into a really nice, marketable condition.

 Results

We redid the bathrooms, kitchen, and installed hardwood floors to take this property from probably only being able to sell for $420,000 to getting $556,000 for it. 

“THE CLIENT SPENT $40,000 ON RENOVATIONS AND NETTED AN EXTRA $136,000 ON Their Boston condo for sale

The best part is that they only put in $40,000 for repairs! It’s a great example of the money you can get in return with the right repairs.

Conclusion

If you’re in the market to possibly place your Boston condo for sale but you don’t have the resources to make the kind of repairs that will net you more money, I’d love to have a conversation with you. We have any tool you could possibly need when it comes to renovations and repairs.

Just give me a call or send me an email soon. I look forward to helping you!
