Curb appeal is your best chance to create a positive impact on buyers before they step foot into your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their initial thoughts about your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Knowing this helps us to decide what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living room, reading a good book in your spa tub or studying in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your house.
I'll help you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or busy places make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers like a residence that brings them inside. Anything that could be "loud" should get moved out in order for your home to impress buyers during any visit.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a nice aroma circulates throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
