Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living room, relaxing in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features. I'll advise you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll review each room of your home. Improvements that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
