Curb appeal is your only chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they enter your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial opinion of your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.
Knowing this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
"Welcome to your new home!"
Could a buyer envision themselves lounging in your living space, relaxing in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. We'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that highlight your house's features.
We'll suggest that you reduce the effect of items that give the look of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
We know exactly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Areas that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a property that invites them inside. Personal items that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your home to garner mass appeal to buyers.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a pleasing fragrance flows throughout your house. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
