Part 2 of our series on Edwardian period architecture with James Dixon covers 4 styles, represented on the same block of our new listing at 739-741 Clayton Street, SF.
Ever wonder why an Edwardian house is named as such? Well, James Dixon, a practicing San Francisco architect, who has done a number of videos and style sheets of San Francisco architecture, explains.

See how our new listing at 739-741 Clayton will be remodeled into 2 high-end, highly desirable homes by focusing on the heart of the home: the kitchens and bathrooms. These areas were currently outdated and not fully functional, which is why they previously didn't sell at the desired price.
Step back into our phase 3 of our kitchen remodel project to see how we've added new structural beams and are preparing for the plumbing and electrical.
Watch the next video, covering our kitchen remodel, where we'll cover the start of construction and what it means to do a "down-to-the-stud" renovation.
Be sure to catch the first video, where we talk about the reason for the remodel and how this was well thought out, during the buying process. See this video.
Juliette works with many buyers, and most want to meet 100% on their checklist.
In this video, we'll show you how to plan to get this done by considering what the property already offers, as well as any future remodeling required. See how to visualize a remodel to get that dream kitchen. Check back in a week to see the start of the remodel and what is involved.
Take a minute to view this video and see what you can do with paint to enlarge the kitchen and make your house more appealing to sell at a higher price.

Every day, at least one person asks me "Is it the right time to sell now...during COVID? My answer: selling is a personal thing and depends on why you need to sell...i.e. do you want to get a larger house, do you need to move, etc. It isn't about the market.
The real question is how do I get the best and highest price? There are always ways to do this.
In selling your property, there are two parts: pricing and preparation. Price is usually limited by the property’s location and existing features. However, with the right preparation, you can maximize your property’s features and make the home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money.
For example, if you have an older 2-bedroom Victorian property in the Castro, then we may want to market the property to a first-time buyer, who really loves Victorians and the Castro. We’ll want to use the right paint colors to bring out the best features and do upgrades to key rooms like the kitchen and bathrooms. The staging (also known as furniture placing and decoration for sale) should be selected based on the architectural style of the home. Since the exterior is a Victorian Stick, the interior would also be classic but with a modern twist.

If you’ve lived in your property for the past 20 years, we may need to do a deeper remodel. Take one condo I represented this year. Here we actually renovated the entire unit - taking out all of the existing carpet, and most of the kitchen and bathrooms. These renovations had to be done to bring it up to par with other properties in the area. This is what helped sell the property quickly versus sitting on the market.

These are just some examples that have enabled my buyers to generate the highest and best price - even now, during COVID.
