Start from the outside, and work your way in

Don't uderestimate the importance of curb appeal. A well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and a clean walkway are most important when aiming for a good first impression. Don’t forget to repair, remove  or replace damaged screens, glass panes, door hardware and outside extras that are not needed.


Invest In Paint

Paint livens up a room and makes it fresh and more appealing. Use neutral-soothing colors like white or earth tones.


Let In The Light

Open your curtains, shades or drapes to let in the sun and brighten the room. Washing windows inside and out will add a sparkle to your home. If your drapes are dark or dated, replace them with light sheers. This invites the sun into a room which can brighten up any living area. Also, turn on lamps or overhead lighting and replace missing light bulbs.  Natural and artificial lighting helps to make the room more inviting.


Mend Minor Flaws

Check squeaky and hard-to-open windows, doors, door knobs, drawers and sliding-glass doors for easy access when opening or closing different areas and provide adjustments or lubrication as necessary. Make sure all your plumbing is in working order. And always clean rust and soiled spots, empty trash baskets and deodorize pet and smoking areas.


Decorative Kitchens Help Sell Your Home

Create an inviting atmosphere in the kitchen. Colorful curtains, cup towels and placemats can make the area feel welcoming. Clear countertops of appliances and add bowls of fruit, if needed for a pop of color. Remember, prospective buyers will look inside cabinets, so make space in cabinets and clean inside and out.


Blend Color and Convenience In The Bathroom

Remove clutter from bathroom counter-space and cabinets. Clean and scrub the sinks, tub, shower, and polish mirrors and chrome. Always clean the floors and walls.It helps to keep the area deodorized. Put out nice towels, and add some scented soaps or candle.


Living & Dining Areas Reveal Interests

Arrange your living- and dining-room furniture to create an open, friendly effect. Straighten cluttered bookshelves and discard excess papers. Clean all the carpets, and polish the furniture and hardwood floors. By adding a few logs in the fireplace, and magazines, books and flowers to the coffee table, you'll portray an inviting and well-maintained home.


Family Rooms Are For Relaxing

In family rooms, your goal is to eliminate the clutter.  Store games and sports equipment or arrange them in attractive containers. Turn off all entertainment units and close all cabinets and doors. Place furniture in conversational groups, and showcase books and magazines on tables or shelves.


Bedrooms Are For Downtime

Avoid a crowded look in the bedroom by removing excess furniture and unnecessary items — keeping the room light and bright. Attractive, clean and crisp bed linens, with decorative pillows and shams, are important to help add peace and tranquility to the room. Arrange nightstands to display books, plants and family photos.


Value Goes From Top To Bottom

Permit visitors to see the value of your property from the front entrance to the back and through the garage. Remove unnecessary artifacts, and neatly arrange stored boxes and cartons. Darker spaces may be lightened with new paint or additional lights in room and for stairs.
