Updating a Home to Sell

Village Creek townhome in Costa Mesa had a nice location and a few updates, but could sell at a higher price with a more complete update. I assisted the seller during the process, then staged it and sold it for him quickly for all cash over asking price.

Kitchen is clean and bright but is small and very dated. The old appliances, old lighting and dirty floor tile had to go.

The master bath had heavy light fixtures, dirty old floor tile, leaky bath fixtures and was just plain unattractive.
