WHAT’S MY COST?
Whether you list your property with us or not, Maser Condo Sales can manage your renovation process from start to finish. Spend the least while maximizing your value. Maser Condo Sales can even renovate your unit so you can sell or lease for more, or upgrade your own home.
Upgraded units command higher offers and as more and more people find themselves spending more time in their homes during these unprecedented times, the value of the design becomes even more important.

12815 Caswell Ave #5, Mar Vista
Project: Kitchen and Bathrooms
This was our sellers dream! They followed our advice to the “T” and they had a record sale in their complex. We recommended they change all of their countertops, paint the entire unit and do professional staging. All in they spent around $40,000 to get it prepped for sale. We also recommended we list it below the market to attract a lot of buyers. Thus, we listed it at $929,000 and within 3 days we had 25 offers and sold it for $1,290,000. That is $361,000 over asking for a cost of $40,000. Do you think it’s worth it? See the property.
