Project Description

Located in the North West of Calgary in the community of Wildwood, Ms. Ellis had decided to retire from her work and move to Vancouver Island. The house built in the 1950’s was worn and dated. Since Ms. Ellis was moving from the property she did not wish to spend a lot of money on upgrades she would never get the benefit from. My job was to ensure that everything we did would help her get the best price on the sale of her home.

The big question was how much to do. We were unsure if the buyer would come in and demolish the house or if the buyer would be someone who would continue to refurbish it.

The bathrooms were in the worst shape and so we felt we had to do those as well as replacing the pink tile counter top in the kitchen with a nice laminate. The rest of the house was mostly paint and cosmetics. We wanted to give the place a high end look with the least amount of dollars. By painting the house a neutral color (Benjamin Moore’s Natural Linen) and staging the home we achieved a sale with higher than expected profits.
