First, look at the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great features seem to fade into the background? Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your home with a critical eye, we will advise you of changes that enhance Open House appeal. We will advise you get rid of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. We need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. We will point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers like a house that draws them in with charm. Personal items that could be too personal should be put away so that your home will garner mass appeal to buyers.

Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to capture buyers' attention. To eliminate shadows is critical and we'll part the curtains, and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. We'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a delightful scent flows throughout your house. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your loveseat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be their next home.
