Curb appeal is your only chance to create a positive impact on buyers before they walk into your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their initial opinion of your home and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance. Acknowledging this helps us to choose what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living room, relaxing in your spa tub or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that enhance your house's features. I'll advise you put in storage anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. Improvements that directly affect your sale price include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers expect a property that charms them. Items that could be too personal should be removed in order for your house to impress buyers at the open house.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a nice scent circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
