Curb Appeal Checklist

Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What great features seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to decide what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Lexington with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - (803) 957-5566 Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest fixes that build up market appeal. I'll advise you eliminate items that give the look of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or cluttered areas make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.

I know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.

I'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's welcoming, avoiding "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.

Setting the Stage

In the short time that your house will be on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a delightful fragrance flows from every room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
