Curb Appeal Checklist

Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to choose what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery 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 home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Walking-through your home with a critical eye, I'll advise you of fixes that improve sales appeal. I'll advise you reduce the effect of things that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or messy spaces make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.

I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.

I'll ensure your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to deserted.

Setting the Stage

The entire time your house in on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a nice scent circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
