Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your only chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they enter your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers form their initial opinion of your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance. Understanding this helps us to choose what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Welcome Home

Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living space, unwinding in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your dining room? We want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. We'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your place. We'll suggest that you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. We need to give mass appeal to the place so buyers can see it as their new home.

We know exactly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.

Potential buyers expect a place that seems comfortable. Decor that could be unsightly should get moved out in order for your house to impress buyers at the open house.
