Stage-Show-Sell, LLC is working on another Estate. This one happens to be in my home town of Bloomfield Hills.
We specialise in homes where the families generally live out of state and can't do the work that's necessary to get the home on the market.
Many of the rooms look "normal" with tons of wallpaper and old paint. These two rooms are a bit of a challenge.
This is the first floor laundry that's trapped in the 60s. The wall paper is now gone and I'm working on a new laundry cabinet & sink and floor. The cabinets above are small and not really appealing. We can paint the cabinets white or toss them out. My problem is that they are small. The lower cabinet will hold a large can of soup. The upper would hold two cans of soup back to back. Am I better off painting them or tossing them and putting in two plain shelves to hold the cleaning supplies?
I've seen this kind of hording before with this generation of owners. They have been through two recessions and several depressions and can't throw anything away.
The paper, flooring and cabinet have now been tossed out. The room is next to the laundry and garage. A door where I'm standing with the camera and one on the left going into the garage.
What do I put in there to show that it's a mud room? A catchall for coats, boots and other outdoor gear? This house has 5 bedrooms so I'm assuming that buyers would need such a room. The fix would have to be economical and most of it removable to keep the costs down.
