Residential Case Studies
Top notch Investment Property
Scott & Lynda Mackenzie, Lower Hutt
Deluxe Package – Full interior and Exterior walkthrough
We purchased the house early in 2018 via auction for our daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter. Built in the 1940s, and last renovated in the 1980s, it was run down, badly configured and in need of some love.
Through 2018 we totally remodelled the home – new deck and sleepout, bigger bathroom, open plan living, new kitchen. It was a massive investment that completely transformed the home.
Then in early 2019 as our daughters moved on to their own independent living situations, the need for the property passed and we were looking to find a new owner.
We poured our heart and soul into the renovations. Not only did we want to fully convey the features and quality of the property to potential new owners, we wanted to retain a full copy of what we did, to allow us to remember the project – when our memories of it start to fade.
We decided to HomePlan it! We elected to do a Deluxe HomePlan including a full interior and exterior walkthrough, key features tagged with links to external web sites, photo slideshow and virtual reality immersion.
Did it add value? Absolutely! The real estate agent said it was one of their biggest market responses ever. Approximately 20 families attended each open home. The property now has a new owner, who we hope loves it as much as we do.
Not only that, we can go back and do a virtual walkthrough anytime we like. My son loves putting on the VR Headset and going for a virtual walk down memory lane. We have truly captured the property when it was at its best for us to be there, when we’re not.
