Not A Teardown

Before: Teardown value $550,000

The MA Properties Online team was approached by an estate who had been offered $550,000 for the home by a builder. We recommended smartening-up the home and marketing it to home buyers looking to buy in Lexington instead of selling directly to a builder. The smartening-up consisted of:

  • Basic landscaping    
  • Clearing the home
  • Removing the wallpaper and painting inside
  • Re-facing the kitchen cabinets
  • Removing the carpets and refinishing the hardwood floors.

The total cost of the work was approximately $25,000.

The Results: Buyer paid over $700,000

The MA Properties Online team brought the home on to the market in the Fall market. After a very busy weekend during the Saturday and Sunday Open Houses, we received 10 offers and the home sold for over $700,000 with no inspection contingency and no mortgage contingency. After the smartening-up costs and real estate fees the sellers made over $100,000 more than the option of selling to a builder.

If you are approached by a builder talk to the MA Properties Online team first. Home buyers are desperate to get into Lexington and by not exposing your home to them you may be loosing tens of thousands of dollars.
