Start with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from a street view. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem to fade into the background?
Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your home from a buyer's view, we'll suggest arrangements that improve Open House appeal.
We'll suggest that you take away things that give the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. We can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or messy spots make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
We know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Buyers expect a property that draws them in with charm. Items that could be "loud" should be put away in order for your property to impress buyers while on the market.

Setting the Stage
We'll tell you when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasant scent flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
