Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their first perception of your home and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in deciding what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your property with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of fixes that build up market appeal. I'll suggest that you put out of sight anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or busy spaces make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. Improvements 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.
I'll make sure that your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try temporary furniture. You want your house to look ready to live in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage

We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
