WHAT IS PROPERTY PACKAGING?

DC property packaging is the multi-faceted process of preparing a home for sale in order to realize the highest possible sales price relative to appearance, condition and attributes.

WHAT'S INVOLVED IN PROPERTY PACKAGING?

An assessment of the potential appeal of your property to its target buyer relative to desired sales price, creation & execution of a plan to address conditions and features in order to help sellers achieve their net sales price goals.

  • We help sellers devise a plan to correct issues that will adversely impact net profit, eliminate or minimize drawbacks, emphasize positive and unique features, create, alter or embellish a home’s ‘personality’ to fit the target buyer’s taste;
  • We can suggest finishes and fixtures to help bring your vision to life
  • We can assist in creating the timeline for your transformation
  • We can lend support, advice and suggestions throughout the process, based on our years of experience in updating & renovating homes for sale in the District
  • Compass Concierge pays upfront costs for updates, some renovations, staging and even moving and storage.

WHY & WHEN DO I NEED IT?

You'll want your DC home to sell quickly, at the highest possible price. Due to location, features, amenities and reasonable pricing, some homes will sell if presented in average--even poor--manner, but not at top prices. If your home would sell at a higher price with some updates, repairs or cosmetic renovations, you’ll benefit from putting some work into it before listing. You'll want to start the process in the pre-listing phase, as soon as our listing agreement is signed. By creating a plan prior to making any improvements on your own, you can avoid unnecessary costs and design choices. No one wants to pay for work to be done twice!

WHAT DOES IT COST?

Cost is based on the home size, type and scope of work needed as well as finishes and materials selected, contractor bids and permitting, inspections and architectural drawings required. A budget is set when the scope of work is determined and you've selected finishes and fixtures. Contractor and vendor bids will determine how much of your 'wish list' can be accomplished within your budget. Keep in mind that unforeseen issues frequently arise during a renovation project. You'll want to include a 10% pad to cover these. A sensible timeline for the work should be established and written into signed bids with contractors and vendors. This will help us determine our marketing and listing dates.
