Curb appeal is your best chance to make a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their initial perception of your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance. Understanding this helps us to choose what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your property from a buyer's perspective, we'll suggest arrangements that enhance Open House appeal. We'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can picture it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a residence that invites them inside. Everything that could be uninviting should go into storage in order for your property to have general appeal at every showing.

Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open 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 take a walk-through of your home and assure a pleasant aroma flows room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
