Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem hidden? Understanding this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers envision themselves lounging in your living room, relaxing in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. We'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that enhance your house's features. We'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. We can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or cluttered spaces make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.
We'll review each room of your home. Changes that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers want to see a residence that draws them in with charm. Everything that could be "offensive" should be removed so that your house will impress buyers while on the market.

Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a delightful aroma flows throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
