Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial perception of your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.
Knowing this helps us to decide what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property from a buyer's view, I'll recommend adjustments that improve market appeal.
I'll help you put in storage things that give the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or busy spaces make your home look less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Areas that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your house has mass appeal and that it's friendly, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to bare.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and assure a delightful scent flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
