Success Story: Small Improvements – Major Success

What makes a success story: small improvements – major success happen? Just three low-cost high-impact home improvements helped sell 1724 Ridge Valley Court in Buckhead in just 9 days for over the asking price!

The traditional Buckhead ranch located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the popular Morris Brandon school district sat on the market for nearly a year before I took over the listing. Less than $10k in improvements gave the home a dramatic new look and the results were immediate!

So why didn’t it sell?

The sellers couldn’t figure it out either. That’s when they called me to re-list the home for sale. After a tour and a brief history of the home, I quickly assessed it as an image problem.  The most significant issue staring potential buyers right in the face before they even got out of their car was the outdated exterior.  And the interior needed freshening up, too. Normal wear and tear left the carpets worn, a major turn off to potential buyers!

CPR To The Rescue!

My 3 simple recommendations for low-cost high-impact home improvements:

1) Professionally CLEAN the interior from top to bottom

2) PAINT the exterior

3) REPLACE worn carpet.

Exterior shutters in storage were placed back on the windows and really added to the charm.

I lined up his contractors who got on the job quickly, and the newly “renovated” home was back on the market right away! After just a week of print and internet marketing, I hosted a Saturday Open House which was a success. There were multiple offers and the home was officially Under Contract in just 9 days for $802,000! $2000 over the asking price!
