Curb appeal is your first chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their initial thoughts about your house and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance. Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house with a critical eye, I'll advise you of changes that enhance Open House appeal. I'll advise you eliminate pieces that give the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or busy areas make your home look less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
With me by your side, you'll know that your home is likable and that it's friendly, avoiding "loud" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to barren.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a nice aroma flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
