Welcome Home

Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living area, relaxing in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? We want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your place. I'll suggest that you take away items that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. We need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.

I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.

Working together, we'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can try borrowing furniture. You want your place to look ready to live in as opposed to bare.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when it's time to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they choose to buy your house. Shadows are a mood changer and we'll part the curtains, and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. We'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a delightful fragrance flows from every room. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your loveseat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
