First, look at the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What unique characteristics seem hidden? Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.

Does your home seem to say, "Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest adjustments that build up market appeal. I'll suggest that you get rid of things that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. We need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I'll review each room of your home. Improvements that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Buyers want to see a property that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be "offensive" should go into storage in order for your house to have likability while on the market.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when it's time to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house. Shadows are important and we'll open curtains, and reduce shadows where needed to show off your property. We'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a nice aroma flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
