Today I’m joined by Michael Valente from Renovation Sells, who I first heard about in Crain’s Chicago. I was very impressed with what they were doing, and I wanted him to join me to talk a little bit about what he does.

Renovation Sells does quick, cosmetic updates with a designer touch to help homes get ready for sale. They typically come in, change countertops and cabinetry, add designer lighting and fresh paint, then sand and refinish the floors. This is huge because there is a reluctance among buyers in the market to make offers on homes that aren’t updated to a certain level.

Getting your home ready for sale is hugely important.

Renovation Sells takes care of everything from start to finish, working with a designer who plans out the entire project to bring the best return possible. They know what buyers like and what buyers will pay for.

They just finished a home over in Lakeview that was a duplex penthouse built in the 2000s. It was on the market for a few months, but it wasn’t getting much traction. They brought the Renovation Sells team in, delisted for 30 days, worked their magic, and 30 days after we completed it, they had multiple offers just about at list price, which was higher than their original list price.

Getting your home ready for sale is hugely important in today's market. If you have any questions for us about doing that or about anything else related to real estate, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
