Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem waiting to be noticed? Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Could a buyer envision themselves hanging out in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? We want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. We'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that highlight the features of your property. We'll suggest that you take away anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
We know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's inviting, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider borrowing furnishings. You want your home to look ready to live in as opposed to abandoned.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and ensure a delightful fragrance circulates room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
