Start with the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background?
Knowing this helps us to choose what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Could a buyer see themselves watching a movie in your living area, relaxing in your spa tub or studying in your home office? We want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. We'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your home's features.
We'll help you reduce the effect of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. We can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or cluttered areas make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Potential buyers want to see a home that seems comfortable. Decor that could be too personal should go into storage so that your home will have likability at the open house.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a delightful aroma flows throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
