Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem hidden?
Knowing this assists us in determining what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, reading a good book in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? We want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. We'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that enhance your home's features.
We'll suggest that you get rid of items that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
We'll review every room of your home. Enhancements that directly affect your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a home that seems comfortable. Personal items that could be uninviting should be put away in order for your home to impress buyers while on the market.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a pleasing aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
