    Curb Appeal

    Curb appeal is your best chance to create a positive impact on buyers before they enter your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their first opinion of your house and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance. Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

    Welcome Home

    Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Place" to a buyer? Touring your home from a buyer's view, I'll advise you of changes that enhance Open House appeal. I'll advise you eliminate pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. We'll simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or cluttered places make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves calling your place home.

    I'll look over each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.

    I'll make sure that your house has mass appeal and that it's inviting, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to abandoned.

    Setting the Stage
    In every opportunity, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Shadows are important and we'll draw back curtains, and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. We'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a nice aroma circulates from every area. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your loveseat and bed. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
