Begin with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem hidden? Acknowledging this assists us in determining what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Could a buyer envision themselves watching a movie in your living area, reading a good book in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? We want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. We'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your house. We'll suggest that you get rid of things that give the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
We know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. Enhancements that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
We'll ensure your house is neutral and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try temporary furniture. You want your home to look lived in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a delightful aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
