Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they walk into your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their initial perception of your house and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves hanging out in your living area, reading a good book in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your home. I'll help you get rid of pieces that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or busy places make your home look unkempt and buyers have a harder time seeing 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 easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, staying away from "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage

We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
