Ridgewood, NJ- Homeowners of outdated or historic homes now have a new resource.  Hillsdale resident Cristina Colacci has affiliated with the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Ridgewood.  A real estate agent and New Jersey-certified Interior Designer, Colacci is  known as the “Property Gal” and offers free Interior Design services to her clients

Her goal is to provide a seamless process for homeowners needing to update their homes before putting them on the market. Bergen county has a multitude of homes built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  While they have old-world charm, they may lack the conveniences of newer homes that appeal to today’s buyers, according to Colacci. “Buyers want open concepts, technology centers, walk-in closets and updated kitchens,” says Colacci, who has been practicing Interior Design for 15 years.  “And they don’t necessarily want to do it on their own.  Move-in ready is the ticket.” “Owners of outdated homes may know their house needs updating but sometimes they are overwhelmed with the process of hiring an architect, a designer and a contractor,” said Colacci

“But their biggest question is: Will this update result in more money when I sell?” Combining her Interior Design expertise and knowledge of today’s real estate market, Colacci can usually answer that question early in the process.  “Walking through a home, especially one that hasn’t been remodeled in decades, and comparing it to the inventory on the market in their area, I can help the seller decide how to best spend their remodel budget.”  While Colacci discusses a variety of options with her clients, a large remodel budget isn’t always necessary.  “Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to alter the house and it’s better to just stage the house differently so it looks fresh.  And “fresh” usually assists in marketability,” she said. As a real estate agent, Colacci provides residential real estate services to all home buyers and sellers in Ridgewood as well as the surrounding communities of Hillsdale, Westwood, Washington Township, Park Ridge and more.  Colacci is a member of Real Source Association of Realtors and the New Jersey Multiple Listing Service.
