Curb appeal is your best chance to create a great first impression on buyers before they walk into your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their first opinion of your home and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves hanging out in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your home.
I'll tell you take away pieces that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or cluttered places make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want a property that brings them inside. Personal items that could be too personal should go into storage so that your home will garner mass appeal while on the market.
