Curb appeal is your only chance to create a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their initial thoughts about your home and how you perform house's regular maintenance.
Understanding this helps us to decide what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.

Does your place seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend fixes that enhance market appeal.
I'll tell you take away anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. We need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can imagine it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a property that draws them in with charm. Personal items that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your property to have likability during any visit.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Shadows are important and we'll part the curtains, and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. We'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a nice fragrance flows from every room. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
