Unwanted Tiny House Becomes a Cute & Desirable Home!

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1440 sf | SOLD $505,000 | 11037 38th Ave NE | MLS#1387022

Getting this home to market was definitely a team effort that started with a friend of Kelly's referring the seller to Blue Pacific Real Estate. The seller owned it for nearly 30 years. It certainly fit the description of "home with lots of potential". The property had some re-development potential so we first shopped the opportunity to our builder community. We happened to hit a soft market for builders and most weren't interested in offering a fair value. We could have done a deal, but we determined it was best to put it on the market. We consulted with the seller and came up with a minimum scope of work to clean up the house/property and prepare it for a full staging. The seller took on the role of managing subcontractors, consulted with Judy on paint colors, and agreed to our staging proposal. This tiny house nobody initially wanted transformed into a darling bungalow. See below for {BEFORE} and {AFTER} photos. What a difference smart home preparation and staging can make! Despite hitting the market in early December in the middle of a dead market, we were able to find our buyer in 40 days. We actually had two offers. In comparison to the best builder deal initially presented, our client invested a few dollars and ended up increasing their net cash flow by $30-40k. Our full-service team approach--home prep & design consultation, expert pricing strategies, staging, listing and negotiating expertise, was key to closing this deal and getting our sellers the best possible price. Happy Ending!
