almost a year ago I wrote a blog about taking it all off and how the extra details mean a lot.
Right now I'm working on two estate and the same time. This has really been a challenge. One is a nice little condo in Royal Oak that has been on the market for 2 years. Other units have been slowly selling around it and this one has stayed on the market.
The realtor brought me in thinking that I could do some magic.
The first thing that struck me was the front door knocker. Being a condo we needed to stay in the same theme as everyone else so I made a great change with a little polish.
This is what it looked like the first day.
And then the next day. Do you think this will make a difference?
The 2nd Estate is in Bloomfield Township. It was built in 1963 and has had very few updates. See they wallpapered the ceiling. This house has been a challenge because very very few of the electrical outlets and switches were grounded.
This is the old style electrical outlet
These were not grounded although the outlets had grounding wire in the wall.
They have been now replaced with three prong grounded plugs
We have also installed GFI where they are needed.
These things take a little bit longer when getting a house for the market.
Stage-Show-Sell, LLC feels that this investment will bring in an extra $10K. The buyer won't beat us up for bad electrical.
The Bloomfield Twp. home will have it's pre-listing inspection today.
Both of these Estates will be market ready in the next couple of days.
Watch for the before and after shots.
