Another successful, pre-listing renovation! Take a look at these stunning before and afters. 106 Peckham, nestled between Indian Ave and Wapping Rd in Middletown impressed when it hit the market in the summer of 2020 after an LKRDC rejuvenation.
Starting with the exterior, Libby and her team cleaned up the landscaping by editing down overgrown shrubs. The most dramatic change to the exterior included top-to-bottom power washing and repainting, including the wood siding, front door, trim, and garage doors. The new, darker grey exterior instantly modernized the home and sharpened up the entire look.
The mudroom off the garage, and the front entryway received fresh coats of paint and new lighting. Libby cleverly staged these spaces to be stylish and inviting, as they offer the impression to buyers when entering the home.
Decluttering of the main interior rooms opened up the home, allowing buyers to envision their belongings in the space, and making the rooms appear much larger.
The living room was transformed with creamy white paint on the walls, ceiling beams, and a brick fireplace. This simple update made the once-dated living interior enticing for the 2020 buyer.
Before the pre-listing renovation, the back deck was tired and weather-worn. With a thorough power-washing, coat of weather-resistant outdoor paint, and clean-up, this extra large back deck became an envy-worthy hangout spot.
106 Peckham is another success story that highlights the importance of thorough preparation of a home when listing for sale. In this case, an exterior overhaul and interior refreshing and decluttering was a smart investment. This property received immediate interest when it hit the market and went under contract in less than 30 days.
“I encourage all of my sellers to allow me to conduct a thorough assessment of their property and offer suggestions for getting their property ready to hit the market and impress. The difference in buyer interest in a property that has been renovated before listing, versus one that has not, is night and day.” – Libby
