Congratulations to our wonderful client Lori Caramelli on the sale of her home in St-Bruno-de-Montarville on Montreal’s South Shore. We sold Lori’s home sold in 74 days for over 98% of asking price.
After almost 2 very long years on the market with several other real estate brokers, Lori approached us about selling her home in St-Bruno. She had already been living in the West Island for the past several years and her previous home had sat vacant for some time. It was becoming a burden for her not just financially but time-wise for her to constatly travel back and forth to take care of her previous home. It had been listed on the market by other brokers for almost 2 years with no success.
The other real estate brokers only proposed solution was to ask her to reduce her price in order to get it sold. We took a different approach.
We never reduced the price, we improved her home.
After visiting the home and discussing with Lori we quickly realized this was a wonderful home that had lost its warmth and appeal as it sat vacant. This was a quality home that had thousands of dollars of renovations put into it, and yet it had not sold with the other brokers. The more we talked with Lori, the more we discovered not only how much she loved her home, but that the things she loved about it were no longer evident to prospective buyers as it sat vacant.
We proposed a complete home staging on the home to bring back the life and appeal that the home had when Lori was living there. So that the future buyer could also experience the wonderful feeling this home provides. Lori was a trooper as we transformed her home completely, painted it, brought in new furniture, decor, fixtures and changed the look completely. Take a look at our before and after pictures of how we staged her home to sell successfully and for top dollar.
We completed the staging in November, listed the home and it sold quickly in January to a delighted buyer.
Lori is a wonderful client that we had the privilege of serving and we wish her all the very best.
If you’ve got a home that has expired, or a home that you are thinking about selling and don’t know what to do, we offer a complimentary professional home staging consultation of some simple steps you can take to get your home ready to sell.
