Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they step foot into your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their initial opinion of your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your house with a critical eye, I'll suggest fixes that enhance market appeal.
I'll help you put in storage pieces that give the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can consider renting furniture. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to bare.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and assure a delightful aroma flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
