Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial perception of your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in determining what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your home with a critical eye, I'll suggest arrangements that enhance market appeal.
I'll advise you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
Working together, we'll make sure your home is neutral and that it's inviting, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about borrowing furniture. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers will expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a pleasing aroma flows room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
