Begin with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. 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 add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your home with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of adjustments that build up market appeal.
I'll help you take away pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. Improvements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your home is likable and that it's comfortable, staying away from "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the 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 experience your home and make sure a pleasant aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
