Begin with the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great features seem hidden? Knowing this helps us to choose what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Examining your property with a buyer's eye, we'll recommend arrangements that improve market appeal. We'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. We can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or messy spots make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients expect a house that draws them in with charm. Anything that could be uninviting should get moved out so that your home will have likability while on the market.

Setting the Stage
We'll tell you when to show your house, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasant aroma flows from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
