Wilderness Gate |
This home came with stunning views — and a lot of accumulated belongings. When it’s time to sell a home you’ve lived in for decades, the journey can be emotional. I worked with the sellers through each room of the house, deciding what to keep and what to let go of. We donated items, had a garage sale, and had the owners’ grown children collect their childhood items.
The biggest change I recommended was the removal of a large built-in that bisected the living room and blocked the view. It required redirecting electrical and replacing the flooring, but the result was game changing, elevating the home to its proper asking price. In a unique move, the sellers opted to buy new furniture — both to use during staging and to fill their new home — which I was happy to help them choose. Not expecting the home to sell right away, the homeowners settled in for the long haul, only to receive a viable offer after their first open house.
