First, look at the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What unique features seem hidden? Knowing this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers envision themselves hanging out in your living space, relaxing in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your house. I'll suggest that you get rid of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll look over each room of your home. Changes that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Potential buyers want to see a residence that seems comfortable. Decor that could be uninviting should go into storage so that your home will have likability during any visit.

Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and assure a pleasing scent circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
