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 form their initial perception of your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home 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. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your home with a critical eye, I'll recommend fixes that improve Open House appeal.
I'll advise you put in storage pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can imagine it as their new house.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll make sure 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 consider borrowing furniture. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to vacated.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside.

We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
