Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their initial perception of your house and how you perform house's regular maintenance.
Understanding this helps us to decide what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Could a buyer see themselves lounging in your living space, reading a good book in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that enhance your house's features.
I'll advise you take away things that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll review each room of your home. Areas that directly impact your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients expect a residence that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be "loud" should be put away in order for your house to have likability to buyers.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a pleasant scent circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
