Selling your first house is a bittersweet experience. On one hand you
remember nostalgically all the long hours of work you lovingly put
into your home and sadly consider all the projects you never got to,
while on the other you're trying to check yourself from greedily
calculating how much your labors of love might have added to
the eagerly anticipated offers.
Fortunately for the house, our own relocation took all our
attention and we turned the clean-up and staging of our units over to
trusted experts; Ken Fulk Design for staging, Eloy our contractor for
exterior painting, and Naomi Lopez to close the deal.
If curb appeal is
everything, then our house had nothing going for
it. The paint on the front of the house was old when we bought it,
and re-painting had fallen to the end of a long list of more
important tasks that needed to be completed for condo conversion. Our
stagers reccommended the colors and sight-unseen we passed them
on to our contractor to make it happen. We'll never see the results in
person, but we couldn't be more pleased from what we've seen in the
pictures sent back. From sad-sandy to rich mocha
fabulousness: three-color job in Benjamin Moore paint. The neighbors
turned out in force to congratulate Eloy on his work - good sign!
