When real estate expert Bethany Souza arrives, she says that the curb appeal is quite welcoming. However, once inside and in the living room, she comments that the inside is not as welcoming as she had hoped. For example, the curtains hide the room's most charming assets, which are beautiful paned windows. Overall, she says the Americana farmhouse lacks the charming factor that buyers look for in older homes.
Next to weigh in is designer Monica Pederson, who issues a three-step plan to make top-dollar transformations to their home. Her focus is the living room, dining room and upstairs bathroom.
Step 1: Keep it coming. Match the interior to the exterior so buyers keep smiling after they walk in the door.
Step 2: Beat the blahs. Punch up the decor to pack the home with selling power.
Step 3: Get rid of the roadblocks. Open up the space so buyers can see what they're paying for.
