A professional consultation begins with a room-by-room tour and concludes with written recommendations for the homeowner for maximizing the appeal of the home to a wide variety of potential buyers. Recommendations may include identifying areas to de-clutter/de-personalize, items that need repair, color changes, carpet changes, furniture re-arrangment or rental, items to be added to a room or removed from a room, and alterations for outdoor appeal.
