Curb appeal is your first chance to make a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their initial opinion of your home and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Walking-through your home with a critical eye, I'll advise you of fixes that enhance sales appeal.
I'll tell you put out of sight anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or dirty areas make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
I know exactly what a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to abandoned.
