Curb appeal is your best chance to create a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers create their first perception of your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.
Knowing this helps us to choose what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your house with a critical eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that improve Open House appeal.
I'll tell you eliminate items that give the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or messy spots make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living there.
I'll look over each room of your home. Changes that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a property that seems comfortable. Everything that could be "offensive" should go into storage in order for your home to garner mass appeal at the open house.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can expect after they close on your house.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a nice fragrance flows throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
