Curb appeal is your best chance to create a positive impact on buyers before they enter your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their initial thoughts about your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.
Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and colorful greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Could a buyer see themselves hanging out in your living room, relaxing in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight your house's features.
I'll advise you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or messy areas make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a home that charms them. Everything that could be unsightly should be removed so that your home will have likability while on the market.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a nice aroma circulates throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
