First, look at the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What unique features seem hidden?
Understanding this assists us in deciding what measures 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 colorful greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers see themselves lounging in your living space, unwinding in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting small improvements that highlight the features of your house.
I'll help you reduce the effect of anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or messy spots make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
I'll review every room of your home. Changes that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a property that invites them inside. Decor that could be unsightly should be put away in order for your home to have likability during any visit.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and make sure a pleasant fragrance circulates from every area. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
