A Bidding War in Riverside

Image
17 Welwyn Road Riverside CT 4 Bedrooms, 4/2 Baths, 3 Fireplaces, 6382 SF, .47 Acres The sellers paid 3,850,000 6 short years ago, so it's surprising to me that this would capture more than one buyer, and paying a $110,000 premium.  listed at $4,100,000, it closed today for $4,210,000 What may have captured the hearts of the buyers, is that it was renovated in 2017, although I don't see much difference between this property and the one that they bought. and according to the listing, it was:   At Home Magazine A-List Award Finalist.

There's No Such Thing as ROI for Interior Design

It's more like a give back! Design is so personal, that the decisions you make today, will not be appreciated in kind when selling your home. So renovate and design away for yourself, but don't expect a premium. When you make something look so current, as opposed to timeless, will begin to "date" almost immediately - like new construction that depreciates the moment you move in... 7 Ford Lane, which sold yesterday for $5M, is a beautiful 5855SF home in Old Greenwich, sandwiched on .49 acres - like so many other properties there - thanks to our building/zoning regulations... The sellers paid  $105,000 over asking price in 2012, so 5,600,000 on a list price of 5,495,000 - proceeded to remove the in ground pool! and renovated the entire space... From this: To this: From this: To this: The kitchen and baths are very high quality - and have "legs" in terms of being more timeless than some of the other rooms...

CLICK TO SEE WHAT'S POSSIBLE! 29 OLD STONE BRIDGE RD - COS COB - 1,585,000 Take this home....I would say that the dated exterior color showcases the late 80's influence of when it was built, which is not exactly on the top of the list of "must haves" by today's buyers...and boy they're tough, because they can be! The interior has been altered since it first began it's listing journey. Lots of wallpaper was removed, and dark cabinets have been painted. It is also semi-staged, which helps today's buyers. It started it's listing journey in March 2017 at 1,950,000. Located in a beauti
