Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your house with a critical eye, I'll recommend fixes that improve 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 neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or busy spaces make your home seem smaller and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review each room of your home. Changes that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
