Previously unsalable – Sold after 4 days – Realtor Don Harkins with Keller Williams took on a listing that sat on the market with another Realtor and did not sell. The location on Hillcrest Avenue in Winter Park could not be the culprit.
His strategy to shake things up was to revamp the property with mostly minor renovations and a gorgeous staging by I design to Sell. As it played out this strategy worked great. The previously unsalable house sold within 4 days and received multiple offers in the process. Stager Helen Bonello-Strauss pointed to a few areas of improvement that made a big difference. One was that one of the rooms was used as an office. The stager recommended to remove the built in desk to make room for a bed. Since the house had already another office space plus a flex space behind the master suite, there was no need for a third office in the house. Marketing the house as a 4 bedroom gave the listing already quite a competitive edge. Also there were a few rooms with bold colors that needed a bit of neutralizing. The owner completed an overdue roof replacement, removed wallpaper in the powder room and did a few minor fixes to make the house market ready. The response was great. Real estate agents submitted multiple offers within a few days and the property closed quickly in less than a month. The team of I design to sell says THANKS to Don Harkins for the opportunity to be of service.
