5 Affordable tips that could help you sell your home quick and for top dollar in Del Mar!   I have been fortunate to work with investor groups who have completed dozens and dozens of successful remodels over the last few years. Many of these remodels cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in many cases.  While being involved with these, I have noticed some trends.  Many of the things future home buyers point out when looking at these remodels that they like the most, actually aren’t that expensive and give the home some major POP and a WOW factor when selling.   I have listed 5 items that cost roughly $5,000 if you did all 5 that would spruce up and give your home the true WOW that could help sell your home quick, get you top dollar, and in many cases double the $5,000 investment or more...

Now a part of San Diego, Del Mar began as a tent city in the late 1883 when Theodore Loop, a railroad worker stumbled on the beach and declared it as "the most attractive place on the entire coast,” setting up residence there with his wife Ella.  They christened it Del Mar, which translates to “of the sea” in Spanish, after a poem titled "The Fight on Paseo Del Mar."  Later that year it was bought for $1000 by Colonel Jacob Taylor who intended to turn the land into a resort, naming it Casa Del Mar.  In the early 1900s, Del Mar became a town of San Diego County, California and is today known as an affluent and beautiful 1.8-square-mile beach town of approximately 4000 residents, contrary to its humble beginnings.  Those wishing to take up residence in this small pocket of sandy paradise ...
