Curb appeal is your only chance to create a positive impact on buyers before they walk into your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their first opinion of your house and how you perform home's regular maintenance. Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Examining your house from a buyer's view, we'll advise you of changes that improve market appeal. We'll tell you put in storage anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. Areas that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers want a house that charms them. Anything that could be "loud" should get moved out in order for your home to achieve mass appeal to buyers.

Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and make sure a delightful fragrance flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
