Bobbi Boldon, broker associate at RE/MAX Southeast, and her husband Brian Prendergast, a contractor, recently teamed up to help their clients fix up their homes or find a new property. “Brian is the remodeler and will bid the job and then the people can decide if they want to do the improvements or look at a new house. I will show you what houses are on the market and what it would look like if you move,” said Bobbi.
Clients get to decide if they want to stay with their renovations or get the worth and move to a different home. “It’s based on the TV show ‘Love It or List It,’ which is about homeowners who can’t decide if they should fix their existing home or find a new one,” added Brian, co-founder and CEO of Professional Home Design, Ltd. “The fear for many is calling the contractor who might tell you the only wise thing to do is spend the money to fix up the house. On the other hand, if you call the real estate agent, they might tell you to sell the house, as it’s the only reasonable thing to do.”
With Brian and Bobbi’s new concept, Brian makes the changes to the house to the owner’s specifications, while Bobbi looks for another house. The owner has the option of accepting the changes and staying in their current home, or can find a better deal by moving. “We can show you the outcome of either choice without cost to you, before you make a mistake, so you can make an informed decision,” noted Brian. “Don’t sell if you don’t have to, and don’t stay if it doesn’t make economic sense.”
Bobbi, who has been in the real estate business since the late 70’s, has seen a lot of changes, but the one thing that never changes is the need people have to feel at peace with the decision they make about their homes.
“Today, with the higher prices and scarcity of homes, people’s attitudes are beginning to shift. In the past, when people got tired of their homes, they called a real estate agent to sell it, and then moved to a new home,” concluded Bobbi. “However, with the market the way it is now, many people are worried that if they sell their homes they may not find another, but with our offer we can help people make the right decision.”
