The Property / The Project | 110 Maxwelton Road

Each home we list has its own set of issues we must address prior to market. Upon listing a home Adam and I walk through the entire home with our client detailing all the items we feel should be addressed. We do not ask the seller to commit to our long list of changes, repairs or updates at this time. However, our next step is to book inspections so we can gather information about the property and its condition; as well as to obtain bids on work we hope the seller will agree to implement. Here is a quick list of inspections we always obtain: Roof, Electrical, Furnace, Water Heater, Sewer Lateral, Termite, Foundation, Fireplace/Chimney as well as to obtain a complete Home Inspection.

Renovate and Style | The bids we obtain depend on what the home needs. 110 Maxwelton had a very worn powder room and the master bathroom needed to be refaced. So we updated the entire powder room complete with porcelain tile flooring, a new vanity, mirror, lighting, sink and faucet. In the master bathroom we replaced the tile counters with Quartz countertops, painted the cabinets and changed out the fixtures. ( We also replaced the bathroom fixtures in the hall bath. )  Just as all homes, 110 Maxwelton needed painting, landscaping, a detailed cleaning as well as window washing – which made an incredible difference in framing the spectacular San Francisco Bay and City views!  We also trimmed back trees and shrubs, replaced the water heater, stained the decks and changed out a few light fixtures.

Final Touches | Staging is always the last component prior to our professional photo shoot. It is always exciting to implement and witness the transformation each and every time!

Our Offer to You | If you are interested in having Adam and myself do a walk-through of your home, just give us a call. 510.414.6777 | | | Are you a Pinner? Follow my Boards and be Inspired |

The Outcome | 110 Maxwelton Road was listed at $1,028,000 – why end with an 8, you may be asking? the number 8 is our client’s lucky number — in the end we had 4 offers; and the winning bidder / prevailing buyers, offered $1,288,888 with an 8 day close, all cash, no contingencies.  If you have a lucky number — why not — whatever works, right?
