If you are thinking about renovating or selling your home, here's a "Love It or List It" strategy that we would like you to consider:
|11 N. Country Club La. (Before)|
With renovations you have to be careful because some homeowners invest so much money into the upgrades that they have priced themselves out of their local market and won't ever get their money back.
If a renovation makes sense, we can advise you on how to renovate (intelligently) so you can enjoy your better equipped home now and make it much easier to sell when you are ready.
We can also recommend renovation experts like Kent Johnsson, a terrific White Plains architect we have worked with who can open your eyes to the possibilities in your home and property.
Two examples of renovated properties:
- N. Country Club La. - a redesigned 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 1970 split level that started at 2,950 square feet. Because of its wonderful location with views of the Hudson River, the home warranted a complete renovation into a 6 bedroom, 6 bath showcase at 4,200 square feet that has increased the value of this property by over 40%! See this amazing transformation in the photos above. It is currently on the market for $949,900. Call us for more info.
An expansive patio and beautiful pool were also added. And if you're considering adding a pool, a basic rule of thumb is if 30% or less of your neighbors have a pool, DON'T do it, as you won't get your money back on your investment.
- Albermarle Rd. - Architect Kent Johnsson owns this split level home in White Plains. Here's a front view of the current home and Kent's redesign that will expand the house and give this property a Wow factor while maintaining a tight construction budget.
