Curb appeal is your first chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your home and how you perform house's regular maintenance. Understanding this helps us to choose what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living area, unwinding in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? We want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of ease. We'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that enhance your home's features. We'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can envision it as their new house.
We'll look over each room of your home. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home is neutral and that it's friendly, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furniture. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to empty.

Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention. To counteract darkness is a mood changer and we'll draw back curtains, and reduce shadows where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a pleasing fragrance flows from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
