Curb Appeal Checklist

Begin with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What unique features seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in San Jose with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - 408-270-9776 Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, relaxing in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your home. I'll help you reduce the effect of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can see it as their new home.

Every area gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly impact your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing

I'll make sure that your home has mass appeal and that it's friendly, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to abandoned.

Setting the Stage

I'll tell you when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers will expect after they close on your house. Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a delightful fragrance flows throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
