Curb appeal is your only chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they walk into your home. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their initial perception of your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.
Acknowledging this assists us in determining what steps we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your house with a critical eye, I'll recommend changes that improve sales appeal.
I'll suggest that you eliminate things that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or busy places make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Enhancements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Working together, we'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can think about temporary furniture. You want your house to look ready to live in as opposed to vacated.

Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas 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 ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a nice aroma circulates throughout your home. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
