Begin with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What positive features seem hidden?
Acknowledging this helps us to decide what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Walking-through your property with a critical eye, I'll suggest adjustments that improve market appeal.
I'll help you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or cluttered spots make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers expect a residence that brings them inside. Personal items that could be "offensive" should be put away so that your house will achieve mass appeal during any visit.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a delightful scent circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
