Start with the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What positive characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest changes that enhance market appeal.
I'll suggest that you get rid of anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
I'll review every room of your home. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers like a house that brings them inside. Everything that could be "loud" should go into storage so that your house will have likability while on the market.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect after they choose to buy your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your property.
