Start with the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What positive features seem to fade into the background? Knowing this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers see themselves enjoying game night in your living area, reading a good book in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of ease. We'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your home's features. We'll suggest that you get rid of anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can envision it as their new home.
We know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. Enhancements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Working together, we'll make sure your home is appealing and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furnishings. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to empty.

Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Brightness is critical and we'll draw back curtains, and add lighting where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a delightful aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
