In March of 2019, local real estate agent Jenn contacted MaxHousePrice about her client’s single-family home in Burke, VA.

On top of extensive updating, the home had experienced water damage from the upstairs hall bathroom.

The process began when MaxHousePrice visited the property and conducted a thorough walkthrough to examine the condition of the home.

Tapping into their more than 30 years of experience in the real estate and construction management, MaxHousePrice factored in comparable home sales in Burke Station Square area.

Renovation Progress and Completion
On March 13th, work started on the house to complete all necessary renovations needed to sell the house for top dollar.
MaxHousePrice collaborated with Jenn to create a result-driven marketing plan targeted to prospective home buyers and Realtors while the work was in progress. With extensive experience in marketing Burke, Virginia properties, multiple showings and offers were given prior to the renovation being completed!
Renovations were complete, the home was staged, and the home was listed for sale in the local MLS on June 20, 2019. With a tremendous amount of interest in the property prior to the renovations being completed combined with a lack of inventory in Burke, Jenn listed the home with offers due 4 days later. With the short offer deadline, demand built up and put Jenn in the driver seat for sale negotiations.
4 days after the home was listed, 6 offers were received! Ultimately, an offer of $680,001 was ratified, $30,001 over the list price! The home officially sold on July 16, 2019!
