Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning characteristics seem to fade into the background? Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Curb Appeal Checklist >
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your home with a buyer's eye, we'll advise you of arrangements that enhance market appeal. We'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
We know instantly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers like to see a house that brings them inside. Items that could be "offensive" should be put away so that your home will have general appeal at every showing.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a delightful fragrance flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
