Curb appeal is your only chance to create a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance. Acknowledging this assists us in determining what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living room, relaxing in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of contentment. We'll help you do this by suggesting changes that enhance your home's features. We'll help you put out of sight pieces that give the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
We'll review every room of your home. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a home that invites them inside. Anything that could be "offensive" should be removed in order for your home to have general appeal while on the market.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and ensure a nice aroma flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
