This North Capitol Hill Bungalow’s Story
This home had 50+ showings in 6 days.
Both the Divas and the Diva Dudes helped with these Open Houses and let’s just say – they were teeming with buyers – we lost cost at 50+ people both days.
Thirteen offers later there was one lucky winning couple!
And we sold this home for $1,062,000 (23% over asking).
Let’s talk about the work that was completed on this home before listing day:
Do you have a few hours? Thought not – which is why we created a short Before and After video to show you the full transformation. Once the home was empty and all the abandoned belongs from renters past had been hauled out – the home was ready for the prep and swank. Floors were refinished, new carpets were installed, windows were replaced, new light fixtures were added, the deck was updated and reinforced, the crazy bedroom kitchenette was removed, the kitchen and baths were slightly updated, the entire interior was painted and the yard was fluffed.
Whew! Sounds like a ton, but overall the investment was modest compared to the return. We had done our market research. Other “estate sale” homes without this type of upfront investment were barely selling for asking price. It was clear making this home “move in ready” would win us way more buyers that just selling it “as is.” Plus, now that it was looking sweet as pie, we were able to have the home expertly staged by the Open House gals and go to town on our Diva marketing.

This fab bungalow had it’s own listing on the new swanky Diva Website.
