Will the Realtor Redux method prevail? The outcome

Will the Realtor Redux method prevail? The outcome

We’re back at our Fullerton condo, now with unobstructed majestic mountain and golf course views. The unit is bright and modern, coated in fresh interior paint with carpets cleaned.

This condo had languished on the market, as not one but TWO other agents lacked the right touch to move this property. Initially a lack of home staging held homebuyers back from seeing its potential.

When that didn’t work, the second agent staged with the homeowner’s existing furnishings and furniture, which made it difficult for homebuyers to see the space as a modern, move-in ready condo.

But was is it really a matter or proper staging and marketing that was scarring away potential buyers, or was it the higher-than-average $600 monthly HOA payment and the looming condo assessment?

This time we truly put the Realtor Redux method to the test, so did it prevail?

We are THRILLED to say we sold the condo within three weeks of it going on the market to a lovely buyer who was ready to downsize. We worked with the buyer's agent... on behalf of our seller to negotiate a price all parties could agree upon – without any credits or concessions for the assessment.

Our seller was happy to move on from the condo. The buyer was happy to enjoy the beautiful views and fresh finishes. The Realtor Redux method prevailed.

At Bobbett and Associates, we specialize in helping homeowners sell their properties faster and for higher prices by making strategic property improvements prior to listing on the market.

This time we will be putting our Realtor Redux method to the test as we look to improve a Fullerton condo, which two agents before us failed to sell.

We will be working with the daughter of the aging homeowner, who told us the first agent tried to show the home with zero staging, while the second agent staged the home but made no improvements and used the homeowner’s furnishings.

Another hurdle will be overcoming the higher-than-average HOA fee of $600 plus a looming condo assessment, but we believe the right buyer will fall in love once we’ve modernized the unit with a few key improvements.

This condo is well maintained but dated in its finishes and furnishings. It boasts amazing views of the golf course below and the majestic mountains in the distance.

Presently this amazing view is obscured by bulky window coverings and old, bubbled and faded window tint. We will have our window tint specialist get to work on removing the film, plus we will repaint the interior and give the carpets a nice, deep cleaning.

Once the canvas is cleaned up, Martina will get to working her home staging magic, using hand-selected pieces from her personal collection.

Will Realtor Redux touch be enough to quickly attract a buyer, or will this condo languish on the market? Check back soon to find out!

Realtor Redux: Mid-century Home Modern Again

Realtor Redux: Mid-century Home Modern Again

We’re back at our mid-century home in Fullerton and putting the final touches on some modern updates we think will help this house fetch the best price once we go to market.

After the tenants vacated, we went to work on the front of the house. We gave the interior walls a coat of fresh paint and painted the red brick fireplace white, we removed drop florescent lighting in the kitchen and installed recessed lighting, and we removed all window coverings and a host of other fixtures and fittings. We also installed new carpet in the three bedrooms.

The property’s exterior was repainted after extensive wood repairs. We refreshed the landscaping using a mid-century design theme. We also installed a super cool new, retro front door.

All told we came in right on our budget of $15,000. We plan to list for $849,800.
