Start with the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background? Knowing this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your home with a buyer's eye, we'll suggest arrangements that build up sales appeal. We'll help you put out of sight things that give the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can envision it as their new house.
We know exactly what a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. Enhancements that directly impact your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Buyers like to see a house that draws them in with charm. Anything that could be uninviting should get moved out so that your house will have likability while on the market.

Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room 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 mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and assure a pleasing scent circulates throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be theirs.
