Curb appeal is your best chance to create a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers form their first thoughts about your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Understanding this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home from a buyer's view, I'll advise you of changes that improve market appeal. I'll help you get rid of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly affect your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can think about renting furniture. You want your house to look ready to live in as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside.

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