First, look at the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background? Identifying this will assist us in determining what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. Fresh paint and bright greenery go a long way in creating curb appeal. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living space, unwinding in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. We will help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that enhance the features of your property. We will tell you to reduce the effect of things that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. We can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or cluttered areas make your home feel smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
We will make sure your home is appealing and that it's comfortable, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider borrowing furniture. The goal is for your house to look inviting as opposed to vacated.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can look forward to after they choose to buy your house. Your agent will work with you to enhance the mood of the house during the showings in order that potential buyer's previewing the house "experience" your home at its best. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
