Selling Your Home?

Getting your house ready for the big day

First Impression

It is said we only have ten seconds to make a good first impression. The same is true of our homes.

What do buyers see when they drive past your yard, or come up the walk?

  • Is the grass cut?
  • Are the weeds pulled?
  • Is the trimming done?
  • Junk and scrap removed?
  • Has someone cleaned up after Fido?

  • Walls and ceilings
  • Doors
  • Windows
