My client Joshua is really smart investor. He bought an investment property here in Asheville and had it completely updated: new roof, new wiring, new plumbing, better floor plan, and so on. He was almost done with the renovation, but he didn't have enough time to devote to the last item on the list: the kitchen. That's when he called me.
Savvy sellers know that the kitchen and bathroom are the most important rooms in the house. Joshua wanted "kitchen appeal" to make the house look fresh and up-to-date.
We started by installing new countertops, sink, faucet, drain assembly and garbage disposal. Then we installed new appliances: the water heater, fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher.
Presto! A new kitchen.
That hardworking gentleman cutting out the hole for the sink is my friend Jesse. I brought him in to help with the countertop and appliances, since they would have been awkward for just one person to move. He's also an experienced handyman in his own right, and I often recommend him to clients when I'm too busy to take on more work. Thanks for the help, Jesse!
Now that the kitchen was done, it was time to fix up the bathroom. Joshua had already ripped out the dated fixtures and had the new plumbing stubbed in, so it was ready for the new sink, toilet and light fixture.
Last, but not least, a grace note: new ceiling fans in all the rooms.
I'm sure the added "kitchen appeal," "bathroom appeal" and even "ceiling fan appeal" will help Joshua's investment sell faster, and I really enjoyed making these finishing touches.
