Curb Appeal Checklist

Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What wonderful characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home.

Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Kearny with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - (201) 997-7860 x116 Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Examining your home with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend arrangements that enhance sales appeal. I'll help you get rid of anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can envision it as their new house.

Every room gets a once-over. Areas that directly impact your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.

With me by your side, you'll know that your home is neutral and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider temporary furnishings. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to deserted.

Setting the Stage

During your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a nice aroma flows throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
