It is sad when a bank has to take ownership of a home and then sell it to cover the loan repayments. But the reality is that sometimes things don’t go according to plan.
This bank contacted a local expert Real Estate Agent who knew what was required to get this home ready for sale. Team Swift was asked to quote for the following:
- Internal Clean including a wall wash
- External Home Wash
- Garden tidy up and green waste removal
- Remove items left by previous owners
- Pool repair and Pool fence maintenance to get its safety certificate.
- Stairwell railing
- Oven parts
- Fixtures in bathrooms
- Regrout tiles in downstairs bathroom
- Various patch and paint jobs and window lock repairs.
The goal here was to sell the home as quickly as possible.
I am sure you can appreciate that a lot of cleaning can go a long way. However some things need the attention of the right licensed tradesperson. This home got a lot of TLC, but it was seeking a renovator buyer to come in and get some flow to the home. So minor repairs was the best option to meet the building and pest inspectors requirements to sell the home. But the right buyer will restore this home to something that will stand out and sell for top dollar.
Team Swift understands the difference and can help regardless of which buyer you are after and what the budget allows for. We are about minor improvement to get a home ready for sale within 7 days and getting the right offer on the first open home.
