Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from a street view. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this assists us in deciding what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves lounging in your living area, relaxing in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your house.
I'll tell you reduce the effect of items that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Potential buyers want to see a property that charms them. Personal items that could be unsightly should go into storage so that your house will have likability while on the market.
