Curb appeal is your only chance to create a great first impression on buyers before they walk into your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their first opinion of your house and how you perform home's regular maintenance.
Acknowledging this helps us to choose what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your home with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest adjustments that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll tell you put in storage items that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or dirty spots make your home feel smaller and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Potential buyers like to see a property that seems comfortable. Anything that could be "offensive" should be removed in order for your property to garner mass appeal to buyers.

Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and ensure a pleasing aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
