Curb appeal is your first chance to create a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your home. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers shape their initial thoughts about your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.
Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers see themselves lounging in your living room, unwinding in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your house's features.
I'll suggest that you take away pieces that give the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Potential buyers want a residence that seems comfortable. Decor that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your house to have general appeal while on the market.

Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and ensure a nice fragrance circulates throughout your house. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
