Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they enter your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their initial opinion of your house and how you perform house's regular maintenance.
Understanding this assists us in determining what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? We want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. We'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight your house's features.
We'll suggest that you reduce the effect of things that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
We know instantly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. Areas that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
We'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furniture. You want your house to look inviting as opposed to barren.

Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasing aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
