Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What positive features seem waiting to be noticed?
Knowing this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers envision themselves hanging out in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your home.
I'll tell you eliminate pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can see it as their new house.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers want to see a house that charms them. Items that could be unsightly should be removed so that your home will have likability to buyers.

Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
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 air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and assure a delightful fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
