The Capture Realty Team works with investors and home buyers to visualize the full potential of a once-tired home, helping them see how to reconfigure and update a home within a specific budget. Capture Realty deploys strategic marketing techniques, unique contract negotiations, and leverages long-lasting industry relationships to consistently bring rehab-ready projects to our investors. We then share our vendors, suppliers, and contractors with our clients. Once finished, we provide the ultimate listing presentation including but not limited to industry-leading staging, professional photography, ultimate open houses, extensive online marketing, as well as a direct mail campaign to ensure that every dollar is fetched from your investment.

This home had great mid-century modern lines to start with, so the exterior required a face lift with new siding, new roof, new windows, and a new front porch with modern metal railings. Mixing several different siding patterns is extremely popular right now with the new modern construction in Seattle. The front of this home is a flat panel hardie material, tongue-and-groove cedar as an accent, and lap siding wrapped around the rear.
You will notice the home had significant mold damage due to being used as a grow house by the renters prior to the remodel. This required mold remediation and was professionally tested to confirm that all the mold had been removed. The floor plan in this home stayed the same. The entry way was opened up with a new modern custom-fabricated railing, new front door, and side light. All the surfaces in this home were replaced with carefully selected NW contemporary finishes. New laminate flooring, floor-to-ceiling tile fireplace, new mill work, and interior paint give this home a much needed makeover.
Open and airy spaces for entertaining are highly sought after by today's buyer. The great room concept combining the kitchen, dining room, and living room makes the home feel much larger and is ideal when there are no load-bearing walls. The kitchen is the focal point in a home and the most expensive room to remodel. Removing the pony wall and inserting an island is common practice when updating split level homes. This provides a space at the island for eating and preparing food while giving the kitchen a much more open feel. If you are going to spend all that money dressing up the kitchen, you should show it off. This kitchen is finished with shaker cabinets, gray quartz, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplash and a large skylight bringing in a ton of natural light.
I wish I had the before pictures of these bathrooms, as these were the largest transformations in this entire renovation. It's no secret that bathrooms and kitchens are not only expensive to renovate, but these are also the rooms that sell a home. All three of these bathrooms required a complete gut-job down to the studs. The contemporary clean finishes in this remodel followed into the bathrooms with white shaker cabinets, gray quartz counters, tile flooring, tiled shower and bath surrounds, and all new fixtures. The master was outfitted with a rain shower head to accommodate his and her showers.
This home was purchased through Capture Realty on 8-18-2015 for $225,000.00 by one of our active investors flipping properties with us. We went active today 1-27-16 at $449,950.00. We will be marketing this home on every major website. We will be performing a Capture Realty ultimate open house this weekend.

"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
