Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your property with a critical eye, I'll suggest fixes that build up sales appeal. I'll tell you reduce the effect of pieces that give the look of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients expect a home that invites them inside. Decor that could be "loud" should go into storage in order for your house to impress buyers at every showing.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a nice scent circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
