Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your first chance to make a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your home and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance. Acknowledging this helps us to choose what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...

Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Looking through your home from a buyer's view, I'll advise you of fixes that enhance sales appeal. I'll advise you get rid of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. 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 living there.

Every area gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.

Potential buyers want a property that charms them. Anything that could be too personal should be removed in order for your house to garner mass appeal during any visit.
