House 2 Home Success Stories Part 2

Earlier this year, we took you inside 3 real properties belonging to 3 real sellers who achieved spectacular results through our House 2 Home program.

This month, we’ll take you inside a few more of the homes that have benefited from our House 2 Home Program!

We have discovered that the best way to sell a San Diego house quickly and for the best price is to turn it into a home.

We have aligned ourselves with the best in the business to do whatever it takes to prepare a house for sale and turn it into a buyer’s dream home. Whether it’s painting, replacing carpet or flooring, landscaping,cosmetic repairs, or staging, we know what to do to prepare your home to shine.

The House 2 Home Program was created as a way to showcase these seller services. Whether you’re currently still living in a home or are selling a vacant property, we will be happy to discuss our plan to prepare your home for the San Diego Market.

Real sellers, real homes, real measurable results. These are their stories:

Days on Market BEFORE House 2 Home: 113

Days on Market AFTER House 2 Home: 14

What We Did: We helped the sellers move their old furniture out as they weren’t living there at the time. Then we replaced the carpet, painted the walls, cabinetry, and handrails, new landscaping, staged, and took professional photos before we listed the home.

From the Sellers of Calle Mejillones:

Surpassed our expectations, not only on service, but on the end result! Here is our story: we were transferred to the SF Bay area last year and had gone with an agent that the relocation company recommended. We were on the market for almost 5 months and were totally frustrated. We found Coastal Premier Properties through their online reviews and they delivered on every aspect from beginning to end. Because our home was fairly original they suggested their House to Home program to create “emotion” from buyers to get us the price we hoped for. We needed to get a price that was $100,000 more than our neighbor who had just closed with 100 sq. ft. more. This was no easy feat, but to make a long story short, we got a full price offer with appraisal contingency removed and a very smooth closing in a very short time. We give full credit to Coastal Premier Properties who were there to negotiate it all for us and we know it was their experience and know how that got us what we never thought possible. We can’t say enough about Coastal Premier Properties, their incredible support staff, and the experience we had. They are truly the best!!

Days on Market BEFORE House 2 Home: N/A

Days on Market AFTER House 2 Home: 3

What We Did: De-cluttered the home, staged with more on-trend pieces, and took professional photographs.

From the Sellers of Marker:

Last year we listed our home for sale with another agent and spent 6 months on the market with no luck. We re-listed this year with Coastal Premier Properties and within 3 days we had 2 offers! Need I say more?! They helped get our home ready to sell. They brought in the necessary contractors and help stage the home to look just perfect. In fact, it looked so good, we almost didn’t want to sell it. The whole process of selling a home isn’t easy. But Coastal Premier Properties helps put you at ease. They are incredibility kind and easy to work with and makes you feel as if you are their most important client. In addition to that, they have a vast knowledge and expertise of the real estate market in San Diego. This combination is what makes them a pro. So thankful to have found Coastal Premier Properties to work with over the past month. My husband and I are going to miss seeing them. They feel like family now!”

Design Trends: 2017 Color of the Year

Sherwin Williams has recently announced their color of the year for 2017! The color is called “Poised Taupe” and it has a serene balance between warm and cool, while also being not too dark or too light. Sue Wadden, the director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams, commented on the Today Show: “It’s like gray and brown had a baby.”

The company explains that their chosen color reflects a timeliness classic which resonates with the color preferences of the modern era.  Reflecting on the recent demand for neutral colors,  the company mentions that “it signals a new direction in society’s ever-growing thirst for beautiful neutrals that bring warm and cool tones together to create one irresistibly versatile color.”

Poised Taupe can work perfectly with wooden floors and structures with white trimmings to give off traditional and inviting vibrations. Below are some examples of how Poised Taupe would look in various rooms inside your home!
