Our clients had lived in their 3 bed, character-filled beach house for 35 years and had accumulated a large collection of pre-loved treasures. The property had been a little neglected over the years and on first viewing required a complete renovation to bring it up to date. The house was initially going to be sold ‘as seen’ and Moving Smoothly was contracted to do a partial de-clutter and clean-up.
However, after carefully and considerately working with the owners to decide what to keep, donate to charity or throw away, the clients embraced the process and eventually we were able to provide a complete de-clutter and oversee full interior painting and necessary repairs service.
Once cleaning was completed and working with their remaining furniture, we re-positioned the rooms to uncover a surprisingly large floorplan with light and airy rooms to which we added a variety of props to compliment the Indonesian-inspired look and feel of a casual beach house, perfect for a young family or weekend investment.
The property sold in 4 weeks – in excess of the owner’s initial expectations, providing our clients with a secure nest-egg to use for their next journey into retirement.
The moving smoothly team was also able to provide a complete packing and removals service for the clients.
