BEFORE & AFTER - HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR HOME TO SELL FOR MORE MONEY
BY JESSICA WALLCE - YOUR SANTA CRUZ REALTOR
As a real estate agent, my ultimate goal is to help my clients achieve the highest possible price for their homes. And I’m proud to say that I achieved just that with this special Westside Santa Cruz home.
When I first saw this property, I saw its true potential. It was clear to me that with the right updates and a bit of TLC, this home could really shine. It was built in 1950 and had never been sold before. There were so many cool vintage elements that I wanted to enhance and stay true to the character of the home.
BEFORE - KITCHEN
We started with refinishing the hardwood floors that were hidden under the old carpets. This small update alone made a world of difference and set the tone for the rest of the updates we made. We then updated the paint throughout the home, using fresh, bright colors that made the rooms feel larger and more inviting. The kitchen was updated with Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring and painted cabinets for a clean look.
BEFORE - LIVING ROOM
AFTER - LIVING ROOM
And it wasn’t just the inside of the home that got a makeover. We updated the landscaping as well, with fresh, colorful plants and flowers that added curb appeal and made the home more inviting from the outside.
All of these updates, combined with strategic staging and marketing, resulted in multiple offers and a final sale price of $2,100,000 – $300,000 above the appraised value before the updates.
As an experienced real estate agent, I know exactly what it takes to get a home ready for sale and to market it effectively. I work closely with my clients to understand their goals and priorities, and then create a customized plan to maximize their home’s value.
From updating the home’s finishes and staging the property, to creating a strategic marketing plan and negotiating the best possible price, I’m there every step of the way to ensure a successful sale.
If you’re looking to sell your home and want to achieve the highest possible price, I’d love to work with you. Together, we can transform your home and make it shine in the competitive Santa Cruz real estate market.
