Curb appeal is your first chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance. Knowing this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with touched up paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers see themselves lounging in your living room, relaxing in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? We want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. We'll help you accomplish this by suggesting small improvements that highlight the features of your house. We'll tell you put out of sight anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. We can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or messy spaces make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
We'll look over each room of your home. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is neutral and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try renting furniture. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to barren.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a pleasant fragrance flows throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
