Before & After 2010-2012

January 28th, 2012 · 8 Comments

We have another example of how pricing and staging affects a sale.

Purchased in 2004 for $124,000.  Listed in early 2010 as a short sale for $99,900 as seen here.  They eventually dropped their price to $66,900, hoping for any offer.  It didn’t sell.

The house foreclosed.  The bank cleaned it up and sold it in early 2011 for $55,000, as seen here.  Looks much better.

The investors remodeled the kitchen completely.  It sold in early 2012 for $96,000.

Another view of the new kitchen.  Nothing fancy (no granite), but appropriate for the price and neighborhood.  It’s all about the quick sale; make a small profit in short time.

The bathroom in 2011.

Front yard in 2012.  Someone gladly paid $96,000 for the house now, but no one wanted it at that price when disheveled.
