Let me share with you a story about my listing in Village 9.

The seller originally had an offer for $378,000 without any cosmetic upgrading.

The house was in fairly original condition and I encouraged her to upgrade the house.

She decided to put in $11,000 (estimate from me and my handyman).

It sold for $410,000 — $10,000 more.  She is very happy as am I! 🙂
