Would you eat at a restaurant that didn’t have clean dishes? Or hire someone that showed up to a job interview in track pants. We didn’t think so.
We can’t stress enough how important a first impression is when selling your home. For someone to take a serious interest in your property, it needs to make a big impact as soon as they arrive. And you only have one shot!
We want your home to stand out from the rest, and that means carefully prepping it for the market so you can sell it as quickly as possible.

We’ve made a checklist of suggestions that can upgrade your home.
