Begin with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background?
Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Examining your home with a critical eye, we'll recommend changes that improve market appeal.
We'll tell you put in storage pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can see it as their new house.
We'll review every room of your home. Improvements that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers like a home that draws them in with charm. Everything that could be "offensive" should go into storage in order for your property to impress buyers at the open house.

Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and ensure a pleasant scent flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
