Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they enter your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.
Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your house with a critical eye, I'll recommend adjustments that build up Open House appeal.
I'll suggest that you take away anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or dirty spots make your home feel smaller 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 show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
Potential buyers like to see a property that draws them in with charm. Items that could be uninviting should get moved out in order for your house to have likability at every showing.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to set the stage for what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasing scent circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
