This case study showcases the remarkable transformation of a house Sherlock Homes Group renovated, upgraded, improved and sold for a satisfied client. Sherlock Homes Group takes pride in their comprehensive real estate services, which include not only helping clients buy and sell properties but also assisting in home improvement to get their property looking its best for potential buyers. Through their expertise and dedication, they successfully enhanced this property’s appeal, making it a highly desirable home for potential buyers.

Overview of Renovation Work

The team at Sherlock Homes Group undertook a range of improvements they like to call Property Preparation, to enhance the property’s aesthetics, functionality, and overall value. The renovation project included the following key elements:

Carpet Cleaning

A professional carpet cleaning service rejuvenated the carpets, removing dirt, stains, and odors. This step significantly improved the overall cleanliness and freshness of the home.

LED Down lights

Led down lights were added and re-aligned. This modernized the house and changed how it looked dramatically when the lights were on. The re-alignment positively impacted the look and feel when walking throughout the home.

House painting

The interior walls were given a fresh coat of paint in a neutral, modern colour. Random colour walls were painted over to match the rest of the house and the roof was sanded and repainted to restore its appearance. A simple thing like a fresh coat of paint on your house can make a big difference on appearance. This transformation created a bright and welcoming environment, appealing to a wider range of potential buyers.

Selected areas such as the kitchen and bathrooms were re-tiled where tiles were missing or cracked.

Acid Wash and Soft Joint Replacement

An acid wash and soft joint replacement was conducted to revitalize the surfaces and ensure a fresh and clean look. This process eliminated stains and grime, giving the property a renewed and inviting ambiance.

New Air Conditioning Vents

New air conditioning vents were installed throughout the house as they were missing.

High-Pressure Wash External Hard Surfaces

To restore the property’s exterior, they utilized high-pressure washing techniques to remove dirt, grime, and mildew from external hard surfaces such as driveways, pathways, and patios.


The landscaping team revamped the garden, adding fresh mulch, pruning overgrown plants, and removing green waste. This step enhanced the property’s outdoor appeal and created a neat and inviting atmosphere.

Spray Painted the Workshop

The workshop was revitalised by spray painting it, providing a clean and attractive space for potential buyers who valued a functional workspace.

Window Cleaning and Exterior Painting

To maximise the property’s curb appeal, they cleaned the windows and performed exterior painting where needed. This enhanced the overall visual impression and created a well-maintained appearance.


The gutters were cleaned out and the entire out side was wiped down. Rusted sections were replaced and repainted. Minor details like this made a huge difference for final photography and presentation.


Once the property work and photography was complete a virtual artist was used to digitally stage furniture in the property images. This was a fast and cost-effective way to stage the property and demonstrate the potential buyers.
