Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What great features seem to fade into the background? Understanding this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property from a buyer's perspective, we'll advise you of arrangements that build up Open House appeal. We'll advise you get rid of things that give the look of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can envision it as their new house.
We'll look over every room of your home. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Working together, we'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's friendly, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furnishings. The goal is for your house to look inviting as opposed to deserted.

Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a nice aroma flows from every area. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
