Begin with the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What great characteristics seem hidden? Understanding this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and blooming greenery 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...
Could a buyer picture themselves enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your property. I'll tell you put out of sight anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or busy places make your home seem smaller and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.
I'll look over each room of your home. Enhancements that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
Potential buyers want a home that draws them in with charm. Everything that could be "loud" should get moved out so that your house will achieve mass appeal while on the market.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to host an Open House, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and assure a nice aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
