Begin with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What unique features seem waiting to be noticed? Understanding this assists us in determining what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.

Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living space, relaxing in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? We want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features. I'll tell you take away things that give the look of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. We'll simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or messy places make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your place home.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your home 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 try temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to cold and empty.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when it's time for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can expect after they close on your house. To eliminate shadows a mood changer and we'll part the curtains, and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. We'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and make sure a pleasing aroma flows throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
