My fabulous client and her creative designer, Kendle Campbell, did everything possible to prepare this beautiful home to be photo shoot ready. Their work paid off. With plenty of showings as soon as the home was listed, an attractive offer was received within 48 hours of listing. Pictures draw buyers into your home but updates in important areas such as kitchens and baths appeal to buyers who want move-in ready.
All furniture, carpets and paint was neutralized. Kitchen cabinets were a dark wood color and were painted to make the kitchen lighter, brighter and appear larger. Counter tops were updated with granite and stainless steel appliances replaced old ones.
Dining room was another room where plantation shutters were the only window treatment which created a modern, bright feel. Walls were painted a creamy color and decoration was kept to a minimum.
Walls and linens in the master bedroom were neutralized and windows are free of dated window treatments. Depersonalization allowed potential buyers to see the rooms without distraction.
With neutral linens and light walls instantly updates and enlarges a room. All unnecessary accessories were removed for a clean, streamlined look.
The master bath had been recently updated with new counter tops and fixtures and fresh paint on cabinets and walls. Kendle’s choices were affordable and appealing. All personal items were removed giving the appearance of a model home.
This sleek terrace level room was a clean canvas allowing buyers to be able to mentally place their furniture.
The homeowner enthusiastically de-cluttered and streamlined. Kendle picked fresh colors, fixtures and fabrics which made this beautiful home show its best qualities. It was a very efficient investment.

Whether you are buying or selling a home you need to know what the home inspector will be looking for. This is especially important if selling is on the horizon. You’ll want to make sure that any problem areas are addressed prior to going on the market. Need help with walking you through the process or finding vendors, give me a call. Lisa Kaplan Gordon, of Realtor.com recently posted an informative summary of items inspectors generally review. The link to her full article is below.
- Grounds: Inspectors are looking for current or future water issues such as standing puddles and faulty grading or downspouts which all lead to moisture intrusion into the home. They check out landscaping to see if trees and shrubs are in good condition and evaluate pathways, retaining walls, sheds, and railings.
- Structure: Is their evidence of foundation issues? Are the sides straight? Is their moisture intrusion?
- Roof: The inspector’s looking for defects in shingles, flashing, and fascia, all of which can cause ceiling drips; loose gutters; and defects in chimneys and skylights.
- Exterior: The inspector will look for siding cracks, rot, or decay; cracking or flaking masonry; cracks in stucco; and adequate clearing between siding and earth, which should be a minimum of 6 inches to avoid damage from moisture (although dirt can be in contact with the cement foundation).
- Window, doors, trim: Assure that windows and doors are in good working condition. The inspector will see if frames are secure and without rot, caulking is solid and secure, and glass is undamaged.
- Interior rooms: Inspectors are concerned about leaning walls that indicate faulty framing; stained ceilings that could point to water problems; adequate insulation behind the walls; and insufficient heating vents that could make a room cold and drafty.
- Kitchen: Inspectors make sure range hood fans vent to the outside; ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection exists for electrical outlets within 6 feet of the sink; no leaks occur under the sink; and that appliances function properly.
- Bathrooms: Inspectors want to see toilets flushing, drains draining, showers spraying, and tubs securely fastened.
- Plumbing: Inspectors are evaluating pipes, drains, water heaters, and water pressure and temperature as well as locate the main water shut-off valve.
- Electrical: Inspectors will check if the visible wiring and electrical panels are in up to code, that light switches work correctly, and that GFCI protection is in appropriate locations.
