This sweet Portland bungalow was brightened and modernized to increase curb appeal inside and out!

Adorable Portland Refresh

This charming 1949 bungalow in Portland is the perfect example of the profitability of Curbio’s pre-listing home improvements. After a short three weeks on the market, the adorable 2-bedroom, 1-bath home sold for half a million dollars! With an initial home value of $325,000, the upgrades generated an incredible $117,548 in profits for the homeowner. Realtor® Maria Boulton of Coldwell Banker Bain and her clients made the wise decision to update some of the essential features of the home before listing. With Curbio’s help, they made strategic improvements that added curb appeal, inside and out! Upgrades included:

  • Installation of hardwood floors in the bedrooms, living areas, and hallways
  • Kitchen improvements that included new appliances, a granite countertop backsplash, garbage disposal, and new cabinets
  • A bathroom refresh with a new shower, toilet, vinyl flooring, baseboard trim, light fixtures, and an updated vanity
  • Garage enhancements like a new garage door, doorway, and wooden steps
  • Landscaping, junk removal, and exterior painting
  • Professional cleaning

The bungalow makeover cost $57,452 (which was only due upon the completion of the sale), and the happy homeowners were able to sell quickly – and scored a thrilling return on investment!

We replaced the drab carpet with gleaming hardwood floors, fixed the hairline cracks and holes in the walls and ceilings before painting them a lighter color. Then we honed in on details like crown molding, switch plates and outlet covers to complete the transformation of the home’s living room!

The bedrooms saw major improvements that began with decluttering before hardwood floor installation, fresh paint, lighting updates, and detail-oriented replacements of the crown moulding and switch plates. It’s clear to see that after home improvements, this house is a cozy, clean and modern blank canvas for Portland-area home buyers!
