Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living space, relaxing in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that enhance your home's features. I'll help you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can picture it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll ensure your house is likable and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can try renting furniture. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to vacated.
