Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they step foot into your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers create their first thoughts about your house and how you perform house's regular maintenance. Knowing this assists us in determining what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your home with a buyer's eye, we'll recommend fixes that improve sales appeal. We'll help you put in storage items that give the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
We'll make sure that your house is neutral and that it's welcoming, staying away from "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try temporary furnishings. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to bare.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they close on your house. Shadows are critical and we'll part the curtains, and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a delightful fragrance circulates throughout your home. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
