Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your house and how you have maintained your home.
Knowing this assists us in determining what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? We want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. We'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that enhance your home's features. Get rid of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared. Knickknacks, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
We know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers like to see a house that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be "loud" should be put away in order for your property to garner mass appeal at an open house or showings to buyers.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we can enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a delightful aroma flows room-to-room. You can make use of cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
