Curb Appeal Checklist

First, look at the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.

Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Carthage with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - 417-358-6088 Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your house with a critical eye, I'll advise you of adjustments that improve market appeal. I'll advise you put out of sight anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.

I'll review every room of your home. Areas that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.

With me by your side, you'll know that your home is neutral and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try borrowing furniture. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to empty.

Setting the Stage

During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and ensure a pleasant fragrance circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
