Curb Appeal Checklist

Curb appeal is your best chance to create a positive impact on buyers before they enter your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their first thoughts about your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house'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 lounging in your living area, unwinding in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your home. I'll suggest that you eliminate items that give the look of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can see it as their new home.

I'll look over each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.

I'll ensure your home is likable and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider temporary furnishings. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to bare and uninhabited.

Setting the Stage

You'll know when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they close on your house. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasant fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
