Begin with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What awesome features seem hidden?
Understanding this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home from a buyer's perspective, I'll recommend fixes that enhance market appeal.
I'll help you take away things that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or messy spaces make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Changes that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Working together, we'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to uninhabited.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers will expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasing scent circulates throughout your home. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
