First, look at the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem waiting to be noticed?
Knowing this helps us to decide what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your property with a critical eye, we'll recommend fixes that enhance Open House appeal.
We'll suggest that you get rid of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. We can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or cluttered spaces make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers like to see a house that brings them inside. Personal items that could be "offensive" should be removed so that your house will achieve mass appeal to buyers.

Setting the Stage
At your Open House, 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 create light where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and assure a pleasant fragrance flows throughout your home. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
