The Before & The After






Garages are good selling features in Baltimore.

 Even though the garage is not true living space, it can and does add value...especially if there is actually room for your cars.

We were down to the final touches of getting the house on the market.


In less than 24 hours, we had a clean and inviting garage.


First step: Empty it!

Second step: Paint the walls, ceiling and floor!



The 'before' photo above was taken over the weekend.

The 'after' was taken today, Monday.

This Baltimore rancher with two car garage is ready to go!

Now THAT is an impressive garage, Margaret. The homeowner did a great job, which will no doubt be well appreciated by buyers.

Good morning Margaret. There is such a difference in perception when clean and neat are up front. Garages do matter.

Hi Margaret - That's a great job getting the garage in show condition - we see so few that look like that, and it really should help.

Isn't it amazing the difference that cleaning and fresh painting can achieve?
