Curb appeal is your best chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their initial thoughts about your home and how you perform house's regular maintenance. Knowing this assists us in deciding what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your house with a buyer's eye, we'll suggest fixes that build up market appeal. We'll suggest that you take away things that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, too many 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 house.
We know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. We'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 need shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
We'll ensure your house has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to vacated.

Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to engage the buyer's senses. To counteract darkness is important and we'll part the curtains, and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house, maybe with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a nice scent flows throughout your home. Other thoughts could include adding cozy-looking throws and maybe pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
