Curb appeal is your only chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their initial thoughts about your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this assists us in determining what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves enjoying game night in your living area, reading a good book in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your property. I'll tell you put out of sight anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or cluttered places make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure that your home is neutral and that it's welcoming, avoiding "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can consider temporary furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasing scent circulates from every room. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
