Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first thoughts about your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.
Understanding this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Could a buyer envision themselves watching a movie in your living area, unwinding in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? We want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. We'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight your house's features.
We'll suggest that you eliminate items that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. We can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or dirty spots make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living there.
We know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home is appealing and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "offensive" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try renting furniture. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to cold and deserted.

Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your house. 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 fragrance circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding.
