Curb appeal is your best chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they step foot into your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their first perception of your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.
Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate 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? Touring your house with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that enhance sales appeal.
I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or busy spots make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Improvements that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll ensure your home is likable and that it's inviting, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider renting furnishings. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers will expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a delightful fragrance circulates room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
