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.
