Begin with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background?
Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Could a buyer envision themselves enjoying game night in your living space, unwinding in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. We'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that enhance your home's features.
We'll tell you get rid of items that give the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can see it as their new house.
We'll look over each room of your home. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is likable and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to cold and deserted.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and make sure a pleasing fragrance flows from every room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
