Home Preparation Services for Out-of-State Homeowners

Transforming a Havertown Investment Property for Market Success

Mark, an out-of-state homeowner, needed to prepare his property at 8 Princeton for sale. Living far from the property made it difficult to manage the necessary repairs and enhancements required to make the home market-ready. The age of the property added an additional layer of complexity, with outdated hardware and systems in need of attention.

The distance made it challenging for Mark to oversee the preparation process, and the property needed various repairs, cosmetic upgrades, and a thorough cleaning. Specific issues included:

  • Outdated locks and hardware.
  • Areas needing strategic painting and touch-ups.
  • Essential repairs for light fixtures, door latches, and smoke alarms.
  • Enhancements to curb appeal and landscaping.
  • Comprehensive cleaning to ensure the home was immaculate for potential buyers.

Without proper management and execution of these tasks, the property risked remaining on the market for an extended period, potentially leading to a lower selling price.

Inadequate preparation could result in a poor first impression on potential buyers, reducing the home’s attractiveness and marketability.

We managed multiple repairs and upgrades to ensure the property was in top condition for listing on the MLS:

  • Painting: Focused on key areas like the kitchen, master bedroom, and hallways, with a strategic plan to make the house show well​​.
  • Locksmith Services: Replaced outdated locks, which involved dealing with very old equipment and replacing the door handle and boat lock to ensure the front door had keyed entry. This job was particularly challenging due to the age of the hardware and cost $360​​.
  • Gas Fireplace: Conducted an evaluation and arranged for necessary repairs, costing $75 for the assessment​​.
  • Light Fixtures: Repaired and replaced light fixtures in the basement where the pull-chain was broken​​.
  • Smoke Alarms: Fixed and reinstalled smoke alarms on the third floor​​.
  • Range Hood Installation: Had a new vent range hood installed, a complex job involving precision cutting through a kitchen wall and dealing with stone.
