Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they step foot into your home. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your house and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance.
Acknowledging this assists us in determining what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living room, unwinding in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features.
I'll advise you take away anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or cluttered areas make your home seem smaller and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll ensure your home is likable and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can consider temporary furniture. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.

Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back 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 at your home and assure a delightful aroma flows from every area. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
