Property Refurbishment

3 bedroom semi-detached house.

 The property value was increased by 15%

& sold within 14 days.


The brief was to project manage the refurbishment of semi detached house prior to it being offered for sale.  There was a strict budget and time was tight to complete the project before the heart of the summer when the property would be looking its best.


Initial Observations

Whilst there were no serious areas of concern the property had been rented for a number of years and was starting to show its age.  In particular the kitchen and bathroom were extremely dated and in need of updating.  The carpets were also showing their age and some of the original fixtures and fittings were still in place.
