Vienna, Virginia Pre-List Home Renovation Success Story

In this Vienna, Virginia home renovation, the owners were the original owners from 1991 who had hardly done any updates to the home in almost 30 years of ownership. Because of the location (heart of Vienna, steps from the W&OD Trail) of the home, it easily could have sold for $850k-$900k as-is. However, we knew that by giving this home a modern update, it would be a home run for all parties involved. Being able to roll in costs for temporary housing for the owner and their elderly parent was just the “cherry on top” to make this deal happen. Continue on and learn about this Vienna, Virginia Pre-List Home Renovation.

One of the questions we get asked most often is, how do we decide what type of scope makes the most sense?

Well, great news, we have an entire team and lots of expertise that assist both agents and homeowners in this area.

Check out our “Renovation Knowledge Library,” with a wealth of information to guide you on your renovation project!

We always take into consideration the home’s current condition, the amount of maintenance the home has had over the years, the selling price point, and, of course, the goals of the client. We are here as a resource to help clients NET MORE AT SALE.

Sometimes it’s larger renovations that make the most sense to help the client NET MORE MONEY at sale. In this Case Study of the Vienna Virginia home, a renovation slightly over $100,000 made the most sense. If this home were to be fully gutted, it would have been upwards of $200,000+. When we went into the home to talk through everything and walk time, we found areas to save. Then, recommended areas where it made more sense to “gut” and re-do particular rooms/areas of the home.
