Home Transformation – Before and After
We absolutely love a home transformation! Our latest before and after comes from a gorgeous townhome that was in need of some updating & a little TLC. This busy family needed some assistance getting their home ready to go on the market. After meeting and viewing the home, we realized there were a few small renovations that would make a world of difference for this space.
When preparing your home for the real estate market, its very important to look at the home objectively and put yourself in the buyers shoes. Most homes would benefit from a visit from a professional home stager and interior decorator. As a home stager, it is our job to assist with making sure that the home will showcase perfectly to perspective buyers by making the changes necessary. Every home is different in terms of what it may need. We can help figure out what that is.
This home in particular needed a fresh coat of paint, some decluttering, new appliances, an updated backsplash and a stone countertop. The cabinets were in great shape, but the home needed a more modern update to appeal to the demographic of the home. This home is in a community with families and young professionals so it needed to speak to that age group.
The kitchen needed to be a bit brighter. We installed a clean, fresh subway tile in a crisp white instead of the dated and tired beige tile that was originally there. After ripping out the laminate and installing a beautiful white quartz countertop with a hint of sparkle, the difference was incredible! The next step was choosing a warm grey paint colour and changing the appliances to stainless steal – the kitchen was unrecognizable! For our final touches, a few new light fixtures on the main floor sealed the deal.
The home went up for sale and was sold in within 2 weeks of being listed for 98 % of their asking price!! The home owners were thrilled with the results and the new buyers absolute love the updates.
The cost of this ‘update’ was very affordable and well worth every penny. In terms of home updates, it is almost always a benefit to freshen up your space prior to the sale. Buyers love move in ready and you will reap the benefits of having your home looking its best for sale!
