First, look at the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What awesome characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your house with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that improve sales appeal.
I'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or dirty areas make your home look smaller and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
I know instantly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers expect a property that seems comfortable. Personal items that could be too personal should be put away in order for your home to have likability at the open house.
