Case Study: Elevating this Torrance Home with Compass Concierge & MStudio House

Blogs Marina Accardo February 21, 2024

In the bustling real estate market of Torrance, California, one property stood out among the rest: 5152 Deelane Street. This case study delves into how our team, in collaboration with Compass Concierge and our in-house design experts with MStudio House, transformed this property into a coveted gem, showcasing the power of strategic upgrades and professional staging.
Initial Investment: Utilizing our exclusive Compass Concierge program, we secured an interest-free loan of $40,000 for upgrades, paid back at the end of escrow. 

Upgrades Implemented:

  1. Roof Repair:

The roof is a crucial component of any property, not just for structural integrity but also for aesthetic appeal. Our team conducted a comprehensive assessment and executed necessary repairs to ensure the roof was in optimal condition. By addressing any issues upfront, we provided prospective buyers with peace of mind regarding the property's long-term maintenance and durability.
  1. Timeless Exterior and Interior Paint:

Paint plays a pivotal role in shaping a property's overall look and feel. For the exterior, we selected a palette that complemented the neighborhood aesthetic while adding a touch of modernity. Internally, we opted for hues that were both fresh and timeless, creating a cohesive and inviting atmosphere throughout the home. The carefully chosen colors not only refreshed the space but also helped highlight its architectural features.
  1. Deep Cleaning:

A thorough cleaning is essential to presenting a property in its best possible light. Our team conducted a deep clean, paying attention to every detail, from scrubbing floors to polishing fixtures. By eliminating any traces of grime or clutter, we ensured that the property appeared immaculate, inviting, and ready for potential buyers to envision themselves living there.
  1. Updated Landscaping:

First impressions are paramount in real estate, and the exterior landscaping sets the stage for the entire property. We revamped the landscaping to enhance curb appeal and create a welcoming outdoor environment. This included trimming overgrown foliage, planting vibrant flowers, and adding strategic lighting to highlight key features. The refreshed landscaping not only captivated passersby but also enticed prospective buyers as they approached the property.
  1. New Lighting Fixtures:

Lighting can significantly impact the ambiance and functionality of a space. We replaced outdated fixtures with modern, energy-efficient options that not only illuminated the home but also added a touch of sophistication. Strategic placement of lighting fixtures helped accentuate architectural elements, create focal points, and enhance the overall atmosphere, contributing to a more inviting and visually appealing environment.
  1. Interior Staging:

Staging is a powerful tool for showcasing a property's potential and helping buyers visualize themselves living in the space. Our design team meticulously curated furniture, decor, and accessories to highlight the property's best features while maximizing space and flow. By creating inviting and aspirational living areas, we made it easier for potential buyers to emotionally connect with the property, ultimately increasing its market appeal and perceived value.
  1. Wood Flooring Refinish & New Baseboards:

Flooring serves as the foundation of a home's interior design and can significantly influence its overall aesthetic. We refinished the wood flooring to restore its natural beauty and luster, enhancing the visual appeal of the space. Additionally, we installed new baseboards to provide a seamless transition between the flooring and walls, adding a polished finishing touch to each room.

The Result:

The meticulous upgrades and staging efforts culminated in remarkable outcomes:
- Sold Over $200,000 Over Asking Price: Demonstrating the heightened value our enhancements brought to the property.
- Only 8 Days on the Market: Reflecting the desirability of the upgraded home in a competitive market.
- Over 13 Offers: Underscoring the widespread interest generated by our strategic approach.
In summary, each upgrade implemented at 5152 Deelane Street was carefully selected and executed to enhance the property's appeal, functionality, and market value. By leveraging our expertise and the exclusive Compass Concierge program, we transformed this property into a highly desirable listing that commanded significant buyer interest and ultimately achieved exceptional results in the Torrance real estate market.
