Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem waiting to be noticed? Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a critical eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that build up market appeal. I'll tell you eliminate items that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I know instantly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Potential buyers expect a home that draws them in with charm. Items that could be uninviting should be put away in order for your property to have likability at every showing.

Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. To counteract darkness is a mood changer and we'll open curtains, and change light bulbs where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and assure a pleasing fragrance flows throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
