Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their first opinion of your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.
Knowing this helps us to choose what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house'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 property with a buyer's eye, we'll recommend arrangements that improve market appeal.
We'll advise you eliminate pieces that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. We can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or busy places make your home seem smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
We'll look over every room of your home. Improvements that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers want to see a residence that brings them inside. Personal items that could be too personal should be put away so that your home will achieve mass appeal at the open house.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a delightful aroma flows room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bed.
