Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers form their first thoughts about your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.
Acknowledging this helps us to choose what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living area, reading a good book in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that enhance your home's features.
I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of items that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your house has mass appeal and that it's friendly, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to cold and deserted.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the changes come together to create 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 draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a delightful fragrance circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
