Take a look at the before and after photos:

When Chris Eckert’s Team was hired to sell this home, the house was structurally in good shape, but cosmetically very dated.

The Sellers were familiar with many of Chris Eckert’s listing’s where he and his team had renovated and professionally staged the home prior going to market. They were interested in maximizing the highest possible sale price for their home, therefore they were comfortable and even excited with his strategy for the sale of their home. Chris showed them that many of todays’ buyers are busy tech professionals that want a turn-key home and are
willing to pay top dollar for it. They just want to move in and get back to living their normal lives thus the reasoning behind updating and staging.

Emily Boulton of Sitting Pretty Interior Design was hired for her design ideas and staging. Emily suggested a going for an
updated Mid-Century Modern look to fit with the time era of the Fiesta Gardens neighborhood as well as appeal to today’s buyers.

Mid-Century Modern: a style from the 1940s-1960s. “The mid-century movement was the organic offspring of modernism. It was rooted in notions of functionality, elegance and simplicity as championed by the likes of the Bauhaus and Le Corbusier, whose dictum – “a house is a machine for living”.

With the design conceived, Chris and Emily met with their local General Contractor who assisted them in creating a list of renovation items and a budget based on their design ideas. The sellers approved the budget after seeing that for every $1 spent, the sales price would increase by $3.The Chris Eckert team kept all parties informed with regular updates during the renovation process. The sellers did not have to manage any part of the renovation, meet any vendors or be there for any deliveries. Yes, it is fair to say that The Chris Eckert Team is a full-service real estate business working for you.

2056 Ginnever fully captured the mid-century modern era once renovations were complete resulting in 27 offers!

We have helped so many Sellers renovate their homes in order to maximize the highest possible sale price that you are probably tired of hearing about it. We have accomplished this for our Sellers at ALL Price Levels with the same objective: Maximize the HIGHEST possible Sale Price for their home. It almost never makes sense to sell your home “AS-IS”. Spending a little money to repair and update pays off in multiples. We always see atleast a 3X Return on the improvements and given our current market, it is more like a 6X Return. We help Sellers find cheaper solutions with BIG results. For example, outside contractors quoted $8,000 to completely replace the concrete stairs shown below. We were told that the current stairs could not be salvaged because they were cracked too severely and they insisted that we replace the entire staircase. My team used epoxy injection to reinforce/repair the cracks salvaging the current stairs. We covered
them with a composite stair tread to make them look more modern. The stairs not only looked better than new, it was done for under $2,000! A $6,000 SAVINGS for our Seller and much better look for significantly less!

Thinking of Selling? We can advise you on:

Which repairs help your house SELL & which ones buyers don’t care about
Should you repair or replace
Touch-up the paint or completely repaint
What colors are most attractive to largest percentage of buyers
New carpet OR professionally clean your current carpet
Remove carpet & refinish hardwood underneath instead
New Bathtub or Re-glaze your current one
New Quartz countertops vs cleaning up old tile & grout
Custom cabinets or go with less expensive stock cabinets
Turn your trash compactor, that you don’t use, into a new wine cooler
New lighting vs keeping what you have
New landscaping vs just greening up your current lawn

1222 Palm Avenue, San Mateo (Hayward Park)
Generations ago, the porch was the “living room” of the home. It was the social spot — a place to converse with neighbors, cool off in summer and watch kids as they played in the front yard. Porch swings and glasses of lemonade became symbols of the simple life, but as houses, neighborhoods and air conditioning evolved, families headed indoors or to the backyard instead. Today, the “front porch” is making a comeback as homeowners look to bring back those days of “life on the front porch” with glasses of Bordeaux!
