Before & After

Property Preparation

Before and After Living Room

Like people putting their best foot forward at an interview, we believe homes should do the same. In fact, it’s estimated that buyers form an opinion about a home within the first 10 seconds of arriving!

We want your home to leave a lasting impression with each potential buyer and preparing the home for sale is key. In some cases, that might mean finally tackling those lingering items on the honey-do list or staging the space with furniture and decor to make the home shine. In others, a larger project may be suggested to ready the property for the ideal buyers. Often, these improvements—both large and small—can yield a sale up to 50% faster and at higher purchase price. The tasks involved can seem overwhelming to handle, but we’re here to help. As objective partners, we can recommend how to showcase your home in its best light to make that happen.

The Drake Real Estate Team can manage and coordinate these projects from beginning to end so you don’t have to—from clean out to construction, staging, and preparing the property for market. Simply provide the keys and our team can do as little or as much as you like—including providing and supervising contractors and vendors, supplying staging, and performing property safety compliance checks to prepare the home for sale.

How much will this cost? It is often less than you think. We aren’t fans of unnecessary spending. Sometimes the simplest tricks yield the greatest results.

Does all that seem like too much? That’s ok too. We can do some, all, or none of it. In fact, from time to time, we recommend doing nothing. Every home and situation is different and sometimes the best thing to do is keep it simple.

If you want to discuss your needs, give us a call-we would love to talk to you.
