36 Beatrice Circle started out as a well-used family home that hadn’t been maintained for a few years as our client lives overseas. Over the years, as the house collected many great memories, it also collected an abundance of belongings. Aside from cleaning out everything inside the home, the outside needed to be cleaned up as well. That is how we started with the Compass Concierge services.
Immediately we hired our trusted landscapers to clean up the yard. Cutting back overgrown trees laying up against the house, trimming bushes, planting new plants, weeding, laying down mulch, and planting new grass for the lawn. The landscaping alone made a huge difference, but we weren't done here.
Next came the painters. We wanted a fresh new paint job to give the house the perfect exterior face lift that it needed. During a summer rainstorm, we also learned that some of the shingles on the slate roof needed repairs, which we were able to take care of with Compass Concierge prior to hitting the market and having an inspector make note of those.
While personal belongings were being cleaned out of the house, we prepared to have our painters strip the wall paper, apply fresh coats of paint on the walls, trim, and stair railings and balusters. In addition we had the carpets ripped up, hardwood floors refinished and installed new hardwood flooring in the kitchen. We also replaced most of the light fixtures, a nice update to give a fresh new modern look to a room.
Bathrooms are often neglected over the years, and we find updating these with new vanities and faucets, and re-glazing the tubs and tilework can often make all the difference to potential buyers when visualizing your home as their own.
Finally, we painted the kitchen cabinets, installed new cabinet hardware, and installed a new countertop. We also replaced some of the appliances and installed a new kitchen island.
Of course, we always stage the property to best present it to buyers. See some before and after photos of this property to really see the advantage of using Compass Concierge.
