Hello, My name is Joey LaFata. I am the owner and lead designer for ECHS.
I specialize in doing homeowner and investor consultations.
This is where I go over the property from top to bottom, room by room with the homeowner/investor.
I know all of the tips and tricks to improve the look of each room on a budget to make it look it's "Buyer Best"
to get the home SOLD FAST and for TOP DOLLAR!
Some owners think they need to spend thousands of dollars replacing items that I can tell them how
to make look it's "Buyer Best" on a budget with just a little elbow grease.
"If there is a way to repair it, re-purpose it, clean it or paint it to look like new again, I know what
products to use, where to get them and how to do it the right way. Durning your consulataion I will instruct
you on how you can do it yourself and SAVE $$$!"
I create " The Homework list".
I take photos of each area in each room and type out a full written report for the
homeowner/investor itemized by each room including the basement, garage, the outside of the home including the curb appeal
of the front entrance, the landscaping, fencing...
Inside, outside, top to bottom, I
cover it all!
"Many homes have issues that need repair or replacing but the owner just didnt get to it right
away and then they actually get so used to it that they just do not notice it anymore. The owner needs a fresh pair of professional
eyes to view the property BEFORE it is listed for sale with photos."
It is then up to the homeowner to choose what and how much they would like to accomplish
off of the "Homework list" but I do advise to do as much as possible. "The more you do off of your list, the better the
home will look to the buyers and therefore the more showings you will have and the Higher the amount the offers will be for!"
I create the "Pre-Showing Checklist".
This is a checklist of items they will want to address before each showing occurs.
An example of an owners "Pre-showing checklist"
Turn on EVERY light in
the home including the light on the hood fan. Open the window treatments. Hang fresh clean towels in each bathroom.
Place the dogs food and water bowl in the laundry room cabinet. Put all dogs toys
in the toy basket and place under the laundry room sink.
Cut apple slices, sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 15 minutes, turn off the oven.
Move the car down the street and take the dog for a walk for 10 minutes before
Have you ever watched a show on HGTV like, Get it Sold, The Stagers, Flip this house,
List it or Love it, The Property Brothers, Flipping the block, Kitchen Cousins, (I could go on and on) and thought to yourself,
"I wish I could have someone like that come into my home and tell me what to do
with this place?"
Well, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I DO :)
How much does this awesome service cost?

My photography services
After you have completed your Homework list" and you are ready to list the home
on the market I will bring my cameras, (yes, I use two of them), double light, and step stool out to the home. I take my time
and take several photos of each room from different viewpoints of the room.
I also include exterior photos of the home, garage, shed, backyard, etc. as well
as local to your home areas like parks, bike trails, lakes, a clubhouse, courtyard, etc.
I then review the photos in my office using computer software.
I crop, enhance color and edit the photos to look their "Buyer Best."
I then upload these photos to a photo sharing service and share the file with your
real estate agent for use on all of the real estate for sale websites, the MLS and all of the agents marketing items.
How much does the photography service cost?
If you have had a Homeowner consultation this service is only 49.99!* as long as
it is in our local area* (Based out of Sterling Heights and Shelby Twp.)
The fee is higher if you would just like my photo service without a consultation. It ranges
based on the size of the property and the location.
Would you like all of the new photos on a CD for you to take with you to your new home? No problem
:) For an additional $9.99 we will create a keepsake CD of your home with a laser printed photo of the home on the face of
"I worked as a buyers agent from 1999-2007 and I loved working with first time home owners
:)Doing this has educated me greatly in knowing what the
buyers are looking for in their new home!I know all of
the paint colors that are the "Move in ready" colors that the buyers want.
I have "The List" of the top 12 things the buyers are looking for in their next house
and if your house can match this checklist they will more likley choose to buy your house over the competition." - Joey LaFata
