First, look at the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning characteristics seem hidden? Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend arrangements that improve market appeal. I'll advise you get rid of things that give the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or messy places make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. Improvements that directly impact your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's friendly, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furniture. The goal is for your house to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasant fragrance circulates from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
