Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Lake Oswego with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - 503-577-0200 Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property from a buyer's view, I'll suggest arrangements that enhance market appeal. I'll help you take away things that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or dirty areas make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.

Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing

With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can consider borrowing furniture. You want your house to look homey as opposed to deserted.
