Start with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning characteristics seem hidden? Acknowledging this assists us in determining what we can do 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 colorful greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living room, unwinding in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that enhance the features of your home. I'll suggest that you take away items that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll review every room of your home. Areas that directly impact your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers like to see a house that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be "offensive" should be put away in order for your home to impress buyers at every showing.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house. Lighting is a mood changer and we'll open curtains, and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a nice scent flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
