Curb appeal is your best chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers form their first perception of your house and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.
Knowing this assists us in determining what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Could a buyer envision themselves hanging out in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. We'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your house.
We'll help you get rid of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
We know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
We'll make sure your house is neutral and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "offensive" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furnishings. You want your house to look ready to live in as opposed to barren.

Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a nice fragrance circulates from every room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
