Curb Appeal Checklist

Begin with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your home.

Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Clayton with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - (314) 252-8955 Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a critical eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that build up market appeal. I'll suggest that you take away anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.

I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.

I'll ensure your house is appealing and that it's welcoming, avoiding "loud" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about borrowing furniture. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to vacated.

Setting the Stage

You'll know when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasant aroma flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
