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 create their first perception of your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house.

Can buyers see themselves watching a movie in your living area, reading a good book in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your house.
I'll help you take away anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or dirty areas make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a property that brings them inside. Everything that could be unsightly should be put away in order for your property to garner mass appeal to buyers.
