These are photos of a home built in 1947 ~3 bedrooms + 3 baths with 2300 square feet on a cute little court, when it went on the market for the first time in 2011. It sold for $450,000.
These are photos of the same home staged for our clients to purchase it. Mostly new floors and a kitchen update were added. The purchase price in 2012 was $650,000.
Then we got our hands on it. We renovated the kitchen, adding a kitchen island, opening it up to the dining room and we also renovated the main bathroom and made minor improvements in the other baths. Our clients have a growing family and needed more room, and put it on the market again in 2018. It recently sold for $1,200,000.
Just a cool little example of how some vision, tile, paint and cabinetry (and some fun staging) can bring a little starter home into the present. Let us know if you need any help turning a house into your dream home.
