Curb appeal is your first chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they walk into your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their initial perception of your home and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to choose what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your home with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that build up market appeal.
I'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new house.
I'll review every room of your home. Changes that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers want to see a property that seems comfortable. Everything that could be "offensive" should get moved out so that your home will impress buyers at every showing.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a pleasant scent circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
