People choose to move because their home is no longer meeting their needs or its location no longer works for the family. If you are going to list your home, take the necessary steps to list your home for top dollar! It is no secret that upgrades and improvements will increase your home's competitive advantage and selling price! Property condition determines the selling price! Although we have worked with multiple clients after their homes were listed, (but not getting offers), it's best for you if we're involved before your home hits the market. It saves considerable time and frustration! We'll work closely with your Realtor to determine what (if any) items need to be addressed to ensure your home commands the top selling price possible! Completing basic repairs and improvements before you sell will ensure you will not only receive a higher selling price, but you will list for a higher price (always more than the cost of the repairs/improvements) and in many cases sell for tens of thousands of dollars more than your original price! To make this process as easy as possible, we work with professional licensed contractors who will even offer short term financing for the cost of repairs (O.A.C.) until your home sells! Once the work is completed, Maximum Impact Plus will stage your home to give it the "designer's edge". Enclosed are a few examples where we have used this process to help homeowners maximize their selling price!

DunrobinWe were contacted by the owner who had just purchased a new home and needed to maximize the selling price of their existing home. They had updated everything in their home except the kitchen, which was from the 1960's. They didn't want to spend a lot of money and were willing to complete the work and staging DIY. We gave them a step-by-step approach that included replacing the flooring, lighting, countertops, and backsplash in the kitchen, and painting their existing kitchen cupboards white. We also gave recommendations on furniture placement and where to purchase/rent any items for staging that they required and the best place to purchase the materials they needed.
