Curb appeal is your first chance to create a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their initial perception of your house and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this assists us in determining what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living area, reading a good book in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that highlight the features of your property. I'll tell you reduce the effect of pieces that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or cluttered spaces make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll look over each room of your home. Areas that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a property that invites them inside. Decor that could be "loud" should be removed so that your house will have general appeal to buyers.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy 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 welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a pleasing scent circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
