Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they enter your home. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their initial perception of your home and how you perform house's regular maintenance. Understanding this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
Could a buyer see themselves hanging out in your living room, unwinding in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight your house's features. I'll suggest that you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
I'll review every room of your home. Areas that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers want a residence that brings them inside. Anything that could be "offensive" should get moved out in order for your house to impress buyers during any visit.

Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Lighting is important and we'll open curtains, and reduce shadows where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a delightful aroma flows throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
