How To Renovate and Sell Bristow Home Fast
How James and Temple Netted an Additional $25,740 Working With MaxHousePrice
James and Temple contacted MaxHousePrice in late January of 2019 about their single-family home in Bristow, VA. A beautiful, but a bit outdated house built in 2005. With several large family events on the horizon, James and Temple were hoping to sell the home and move to Florida; all before James gets deployed in March of 2019.
Due to the wear and tear of the home over the years, James and Temple were scared about leaving money on the table by going with “low ball” options for their home such as selling to an investor, cash buyer, homebuyer or listing as-is.
How Are We Ever Going to Sell This House Fast at Market Value?
As James and Temple contemplated their options, they were worried about several key issues when deciding which path to take when selling their home. First, would they be able to sell the house listing as-is and get what they thought it was worth? They knew it needed some upgrading, but how would they get the money to finance the renovations? Or manage the project?
Time was of the essence as they needed to get the house ready to sell before James deployed, but weren’t willing to compromise by leaving money on the table. They were on the clock, was it possible to renovate and sell the house in 45 days?
James and Temple Needed Someone to Guide Them
With the options seeming to be overwhelming, James and Temple contacted MaxHousePrice to see if they could make the process a lot easier.
The process first started out with a thorough walkthrough of the home to examine the condition of the home and identify the repairs needed while checking for potential opportunities to make value engineered upgrades to the home. At the same time, focused on the comparable sales in New Bristow Village, tapping into our over 30 years of experience in the real estate and construction management.

Before MaxHousePrice Renovation
Renovation Progress and Completion
Starting on February 4th, 2019, work started on the house to complete all necessary renovations needed to sell the house for top dollar.
To help attract home buyers, MaxHousePrice developed a result-driven marketing plan to draw the attention of prospective home buyers and Realtors while the work was in progress. MaxHousePrice worked with their partner – TVRG Homes, who aggressively pre-marketed the home to other Realtors and home buyers simultaneously. With over 30 years of real estate and marketing experience, MaxHousePrice was able to create a market for the house, even before renovations were complete!
Fast forward to March 7, 2019. The renovations were complete and the home was listed for sale in the local MLS. They scheduled multiple showings immediately as soon as property went active in the MLS.
On March 9, 2019, a full price offer of $600,000 was ratified! TVRG homes successfully managed to close the sale on time and the home officially sold to its happy new owners on April 30, 2019!
