A homeowner called on me to do a color consultation. She was tired of living in a drab looking environment for the last 7 years. I went, and selected new paint colors for the whole house. She planned to have some rooms painted ‘now and the rest later’.
A couple of weeks had passed and the homeowner called me again. This time she said that she had put in an offer on a condo and would be selling the house. What?! She needed a painter and handyman pronto to do the work required before staging and listing the home. I found a painter and then consulted with the client on what needed doing in order to sell her home quickly. After a major purge and de-cluttering, I sent the painter to paint the rest of her house. Then I brought in my handyman to fix the many things that needed to be addressed. Any flaws detected by would-be home buyers would result in lower offers!
Time was of the essence now. The holidays were fast approaching and the growing list of work to be done wasn’t yet complete… let alone the staging. My client went on vacation to be with her family and left me in charge. The handy work was finally finished, the cleaners came in, and I was ready to stage the occupied home.
I then went to shop for the staging decor as well as for my client. She would hopefully take it with her to the new place. As I completed each room, I sent her photos of my work. She loved it all!
The open house took place on the weekend. Upon her return, there were multiple offers. It sold that same day for well over asking! My client was thrilled as she got exactly what she wanted PLUS she was equipped with paint colors and decor to take with her to the new condo!
The client absolutely loves her new place. It’s fresh, clean and offers a sense of serenity… it’s what she really needed.
