Curb appeal is your first chance to create a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers create their first perception of your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.
Understanding this assists us in determining what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your home from a buyer's perspective, I'll advise you of adjustments that build up sales appeal.
I'll advise you put out of sight items that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or busy spaces make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly what a room's best features are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want a property that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be uninviting should go into storage so that your home will have general appeal while on the market.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a delightful scent circulates room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
