Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their initial perception of your house and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance. Knowing this helps us to decide what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that highlight your house's features. I'll tell you put in storage things that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll review every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's friendly, staying away from "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider borrowing furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to vacated.

Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a delightful scent circulates throughout your home. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
