Vanilla Square managed the rental of this handsome duplex conversion for a number of years whilst the owner settled into a new positon in Australia. Deciding to sell the property and reside permanently in Australia, the owner wanted to maximise his sale both in terms of timescale and price. Having had tenants in the property and a little work needing done, VS proposed decorating works along with our dressing for sale service to show this beautiful period property off at its best. A neighbouring property had sold recently for £490,000 although our expectations were a lot higher for this property. It was launched to the market and admired by a number of potential purchasers before securing a sale at close to £600,000 from a buyer sourced in Switzerland.
This sale was a great example of how we can turn a rental property into a stunning home and sell it seamlessly, all whilst the owner relaxes in another country. This entire process was carried out without the owner needing to visit and this took all the stress associated with renovating and selling from the owner who was delighted with the results.
