Begin with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What positive features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to choose what actions 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 colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that enhance the features of your home.
I'll help you take away anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or busy places make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure that your house has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look homey as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a nice aroma flows room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
