Curb appeal is your first chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their first perception of your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance. Knowing this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your property with a critical eye, we'll advise you of adjustments that improve Open House appeal. We'll suggest that you get rid of things that give the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
We'll review each room of your home. Changes that directly affect your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers want a property that invites them inside. Decor that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your property to have likability during any visit.

Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Shadows are a mood changer and we'll open curtains, and add lighting where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and ensure a pleasing aroma flows throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
