Begin with the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?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 inviting with retouched paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living room, unwinding in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your home. I'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, steering clear of "loud" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to barren.
