Curb appeal is your first chance to create a great first impression on buyers before they walk into your home. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers shape their initial thoughts about your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.
Understanding this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, unwinding in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? We want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. We'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your home's features.
We'll help you eliminate anything that gives the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. We can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or busy places make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want a residence that brings them inside. Decor that could be "offensive" should be removed so that your home will impress buyers during any visit.

Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a delightful fragrance flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
