Start with the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What awesome features seem hidden?
Acknowledging this assists us in determining what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house with a buyer's eye, we'll advise you of fixes that will make your home pop. Remove anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and children's artwork should be stored away too. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.
We'll review each room of your home. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that may need to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.

Setting the Stage
We'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a delightful scent circulates from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be their home.
