Start with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem waiting to be noticed? Understanding this helps us to choose what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Could a buyer envision themselves enjoying game night 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 Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your home's features. I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or messy places make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers expect a home that charms them. Anything that could be uninviting should get moved out so that your home will impress buyers while on the market.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Brightness is important and we'll part the curtains, and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and make sure a nice scent flows from every room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your loveseat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
