Curb Appeal Checklist

Curb appeal is your first chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their initial opinion of your house and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Knowing this helps us to choose what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.

Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Plano with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - (214) 808-3100 Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your property with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest fixes that improve sales appeal. I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or cluttered areas make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".

I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.

Buyers expect a residence that seems comfortable. Items that could be uninviting should get moved out in order for your house to have general appeal while on the market.

Setting the Stage

In every opportunity, we want to capture buyers' attention. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a delightful scent flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
