Curb appeal is your first chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers form their first perception of your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.
Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your property with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend changes that enhance sales appeal.
I'll advise you eliminate items that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can imagine it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers want a house that invites them inside. Items that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your home to achieve mass appeal during any visit.

Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and make sure a nice scent circulates throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
