Empty Nesters Maximize Return on Home Investment

With our help, these homeowners sold their home at 98% of list price and were under contract within one day! Plus, they found the perfect home for their current needs. 

Wendy and Leigh lived in their home for two decades raising their two sons. After both kids graduated from college, they realized their home was too big for just the two of them. They wanted to be in an easy to maintain, one-story home closer to work and near the activities they loved. It was time to sell.

We made some suggestions to get their current home ready for sale so they could get the maximum price, including new paint in various locations, repairing broken appliances, landscaping and other updates and repairs. In addition, we staged the home with perfect furniture and accessory placement and our professional photographer took the pictures for our both our on line and print marketing.

We used trustworthy contractors we had experience with and we managed the entire process, so it was stress free for Wendy and Leigh.

By investing a small sum of money ($6,640 total) in preparing their home, we were able to help them capture 10% more than they would have without the improvements. Also, Real Estate Butlers is one of the only Atlanta real estate firms that will defer home improvement cost until the sale of the home, so no out of pocket funds are needed upfront.

Results:

Real Estate Butlers drew up an offer within one day of the home being on the market and Wendy and Leigh received 98% of their list price!

We also helped the couple locate a beautiful, one level home in Briar Manor just three miles from their office. It included a renovated master suite, sun room and inviting outdoor space and was just what they were looking for. They couldn’t be happier!
