Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a street view. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem to fade into the background? Acknowledging this helps us to decide what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and blooming 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 enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. We'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your property. We'll help you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
We'll look over each room of your home. Enhancements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers expect a house that invites them inside. Personal items that could be unsightly should get moved out in order for your property to have likability at every showing.

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 add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and ensure a nice fragrance circulates from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
