Sold - $762,000

4 bed · 1 bath · 1256 SQFT

Listed for $685,000 and sold with 9 offers for $762,000. This charming home on the Cambrian Park Willow Glen border got an impactful makeover prior to listing the home for sale.  The result was selling over $40k more than a similar home in the neighborhood 3 months prior.  To make it easier on my clients, who were moving to Washington State, I told them to "Just take what you want and leave the rest behind".  Then working off a limited budget, we did the following, followed by a multi-pronged marketing approach:

  • Removed the trash from the home
  • Removed the overgrown landscaping, debris and vines from the grounds of the home
  • Installed new landscaping
  • Painted inside and out
  • Replaced the pet-damaged carpets in the four bedrooms
  • Contemporary staging
  • Thorough pest and home inspection
"After 25 years in Cambrian Park, we decided it was time to move, but how? The key was the right Realtor - one who had the vision and resources to make our old house into a bright and attractive show piece.  Kirsten Reilly had the amazing vision and excellent resources to turn $15,000 of property improvement into $77,000, exceeding even her own estimate of 400-500% return.  Her market knowledge and strategic approach were remarkable.  We highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home."
