Begin with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty 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? Looking through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest arrangements that improve market appeal.
I'll suggest that you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or messy spots make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers want a home that invites them inside. Personal items that could be "loud" should be removed in order for your house to have likability to buyers.
