Curb Appeal Checklist

First, look at the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background?Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Lake Oswego with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - 503-577-0200 Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your house with a critical eye, I'll suggest fixes that build up market appeal. I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of items that give the look of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or busy areas make your home look unkempt and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.

I'll review each room of your home. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing

Buyers' agents know that their clients want a residence that brings them inside. Anything that could be uninviting should be removed in order for your house to have general appeal during any visit.

Setting the Stage

You'll know when to show your house, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can expect after they close on your house. Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a nice fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
