Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Santa Barbara with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - 805-899-1100 Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a critical eye, I'll recommend changes that improve Open House appeal. I'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or cluttered spots make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".

I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Changes that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing

Potential buyers want a home that brings them inside. Decor that could be unsightly should be removed in order for your property to impress buyers during any visit.
