Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Raleigh with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - 919-332-1070 Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your house with a critical eye, I'll advise you of fixes that improve market appeal. I'll help you put in storage pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or cluttered spots make your home seem smaller and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".

I know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Changes that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.

I'll make sure that your home is appealing and that it's inviting, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furnishings. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to deserted.

Setting the Stage

You'll know when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision after they close on your house. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a pleasing aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
