Here’s How to Pick Art for Your Home When Staging, According to the Pros

Realtor Redux: A ‘Light’ Redux in La Habra Brings in an Extra $60k

When we received a call to discuss the sale of a home in La Habra, it was right up our alley. The seller was looking to sell his long-time family home and was very aware and direct about its need for a facelift. It had been advised, by another agent, that the seller spend upward of $60,000 to do a major renovation thereby increasing the potential asking price of the home. When this was explained to us we offered a different approach. Since the large scale and very expensive...

Realtor Redux: An Inspired Improvement in Tustin

When a past client from nearly 10 years ago contacted us to assist with the sale of his home in Tustin, we were thrilled to be trusted and for his loyalty. He acknowledged that the home could stand for a bit of inspired improvement, and Martina was just the person to coordinate our efforts and oversee those improvements. Due to the seller’s out of state moving schedule, we started the redux on the exterior of the home beginning with major growth and shrub removal from the...

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...

Will the Realtor Redux method prevail?

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...

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...

Realtor Redux: Charming Mid-century Home in Need of Modern Touches

We’re dedicated to helping homeowners make strategic investments in their properties so they can make the most from their home sales. Our latest Redux project was a long-time rental property with a long Fullerton ownership history. This home is unique in the sense that there’s a permitted Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) attached to the rear of the main home with its own two-car garage. On our first walk-through, we immediately spotted some gorgeous mid-century design elements....

Realtor Redux: Our diamond shines bright; light and welcoming

We’re checking in again to see how our diamond in the rough cleaned up. This home has had the same owner since 1955 and was heavily smoked in. Years of wear and tear meant the home needed a deep cleaning and a few choice improvements. We had a total budget of $5,500 to work with and immediately got to work by removing exterior window awnings, power washing the exterior and repainting porch railing and the front door. Inside, we took up dark red carpeting to expose the original...

Realtor Redux: Diamond in the rough in need of a shine

We make a home ‘move-in’ ready for new buyers, and over time, the new owners can make the big improvements, such as remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms. Our latest project has good bones but has been heavily smoked in so will need a deep cleaning and some updates such as interior paint and the removal of exterior window...

A golden outcome: Key home improvements in short time span yield multiple offers, happy seller

With only a 12-day window in which to complete our latest project, we had our work cut out for us. We had a pretty significant list of items that needed a little TLC. We refinished the hardwood floors, which date back to the home’s construction in 1956. We also installed new tile in the master bathroom. A fresh coat of paint is one of the best things you can do to immediately give new life to a room. We repainted the interior including the kitchen cabinets. We also made...
