First, look at the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What awesome features seem to fade into the background?
Knowing this assists us in determining what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Looking through your home from a buyer's perspective, we'll recommend fixes that enhance market appeal.
We'll suggest that you take away anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
We know instantly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a house that charms them. Everything that could be uninviting should be put away so that your house will have likability during any visit.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows 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 pleasant scent flows room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
