Curb appeal is your first chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers form their first opinion of your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.
Acknowledging this helps us to decide what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, relaxing in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your property.
I'll help you reduce the effect of pieces that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or dirty places make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's friendly, avoiding "loud" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can consider renting furniture. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to cold and deserted.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect when they consider buying your house. Lighting is critical and we'll open curtains, and add lighting where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and ensure a nice aroma flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
