First, look at the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem to fade into the background?
Understanding this assists us in deciding what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property with a critical eye, I'll suggest adjustments that build up market appeal.
I'll help you take away anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or dirty places make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Improvements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to cold and empty.

Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a delightful aroma circulates from every area. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
