Why Sell With Us

Preparing Your Home

We Know That The Best Way To Market A Home Begins By STRATEGICALLY
Helping The Homeowner Have The Best Possible House.

First impressions are everything. We have prepared this checklist to help your property outshine the competition on the days of your photo/video/3D shoot, during open houses and all showings. For further assistance contact us right away and we will arrange a free no obligation walk through with the experts, possibly including contractors, stagers and other valuable service providers.

General

  • Turn on all lamps and lights including oven hood, artwork and cabinet lights.
  • Replace any burned out bulbs.
  • Turn ceiling fans to their lowest setting.
  • Sweep driveway and decks.
  • Remove pet food bowls and toys, and conceal pets.
  • Fireplaces are terrific props and should be turned on if possible.
  • Decorative candles may be lit.
  • Open doors between rooms to give an open feeling and ensure all rooms are included in the tour.
  • Remove children’s and pet’s toys from all rooms.
  • Bedding, pillows, comforters and bed skirts should be properly aligned.

Bathroom

  • All toilet seats should be closed. Shower/bath items should be placed under the sink for the tour.

Kitchen

  • Clear the island so the tour shows how spacious it is. Small appliances you use every day are OK.
  • Clear the refrigerator, and please remove personal items from the fridge.
  • Don’t forget to conceal the garbage.

Exterior of Home

  • We love pets, but please put dogs in dog runs or garage at the time of the marketing shoot.
  • Remove all vehicles from the front of the house and the driveway. If possible park at least 2 houses away (for busy streets, please leave your car in front to ensure no one else parks there.
  • All yard hoses should be neatly coiled.
  • Make sure there are no trash cans visible on the outside of the home.
  • Turn on all waterscapes in yards including jacuzzis, ponds and waterfalls.

What clients
Are Saying

[Our PPG agent] worked closely with us in the sale of our home and we would recommend him highly to others looking for a realtor. He recommended and helped us with strategic improvements and staging that resulted in us listing our house above all other comparable houses in our area, and higher than other larger houses on or near our street that had sold recently. Another benefit with working with [our PPG agent] was the coordination and assistance he provided in arranging for people to work with along the process (contractors to make improvements and updates, carpet cleaners, roofing contractors, and stagers). His marketing was also unique compared to other realtors we had spoken with in that it included a beautiful video, a 3D tour, and extensive marketing literature of the home. The result was multiple offers within days of the initial open house, in spite of being listed the weekend before Thanksgiving! We are very thankful to [our PPG agent] and everyone on the team for their help and the great work.
