Phinney Ridge Refresh
The owners of this Phinney Ridge home had reached retirement age and were ready to downsize to a smaller home, so they enlisted Nancie’s services for a sale. Rather than moving forward with a listing, Nancie’s recommendation was to invest in a remodel to update the house and its appliances, broadening the home’s appeal to more buyers. When your house represents your retirement nest egg, it’s a daunting risk to take, but familiar with Nancie’s track record, the owners agreed. Like with all remodels, there were challenges, but with Nancie’s guidance the owners remained committed. Nancie project managed the remodel, bringing in her team of contractors, designers and stagers. The update was completed in April 2015 and the house sold in six days, for $210,000 over the asking price, with multiple offers.
