Remodeling a Historic Home to Sell Part 2

Remodeled Millcreek Home Sold in 4 days, Utah 

From Part 1 of our Remodeling a Home to Sell we showed you the beginning stages of the remodel.  Our Clients listened to our advise and the improvements were made.  With about $17,000 in repairs and upgrades the home sold in only 4 days on the market for almost full price.  The best part was that we were able to sell the home for over $36,000 more than the previous listing and made our Seller almost $20,000 more.  Needless to say, they were excited!

Our clients had been through the ringer trying to sell their family home on this desirable Milcreek lot.  The house just wasn't up to date enough to reflect what buyers want - a turn key property they can walk into and start living in now.  Consequently, the house had been under contract several times but had yet to sell.

New wood floors, baseboards, paint, and an open concept living area. So fresh, so clean!

The final product of a quick couple weeks of remodeling is impressive.  The house looks completely new and ready for a single family to call their own.


This basement room was a mess.

 Before stairs it was just an awkward to the basement bathroom. 


Finally a real way to use the space!
