Curb appeal is your first chance to create a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their initial perception of your house and how you perform home's regular maintenance. Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your home with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of fixes that improve sales appeal. I'll advise you reduce the effect of items that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or cluttered spots make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers expect a home that charms them. Anything that could be too personal should be put away in order for your home to have likability during any visit.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they close on your house. Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and make sure a nice scent flows throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
