Curb appeal is your first chance to create a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your house and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance.
Knowing this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Can buyers see themselves hanging out in your living area, reading a good book in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your home.
I'll suggest that you put in storage things that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or busy areas make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll look over every room of your home. Improvements that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Buyers want a house that seems comfortable. Decor that could be "offensive" should be removed in order for your house to achieve mass appeal during any visit.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they close on your house.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and assure a pleasing scent flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
