Curb appeal is your only chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they enter your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their first thoughts about your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance. Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
Can buyers picture 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 Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that highlight your home's features. I'll tell you put out of sight items that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. We need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, avoiding "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider renting furnishings. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.

Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Lighting is important and we'll draw back curtains, and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. We'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a nice fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your place is their future home.
