Getting the Highest Price for Your Home

A lack of curb appeal can be deadly in today’s real estate market. If your buyer is unenthused or drives right by, the money you spent inside goes to waste.  A shabby or uninspired exterior screams "project!" or "deferred maintenance!" to buyers looking for move-in-ready homes.

Curb appeal sets the stage

Staging your home has become the standard practice for selling property for the best prices, and the big wins are in the details.  Curb appeal is no exception.

In fact, when it comes to getting top dollar, curb appeal means everything. A gorgeous front garden, a welcoming porch, a shot of color truly invite buyers inside and start their wheels turning as they envision themselves living in your home.  We recommend staging your home on the outside to help sell the inside.

Closing Costs to Expect

  • Broker's commission is a full-service fee and will cost anywhere between 5% to 6%.
