Preparing your home for Sale

Did you know well-placed furniture can open up rooms and make them seem larger than they are? Or that opening drapes and blinds and turning on all lights make a room seem bright and cheery?

It’s a fact: acquiring the highest market value and elevating your home above others in the same price range often comes down to first impressions.

I could not feel more blessed that I met the Access Home team when I did. They helped me sell my previous house in May 2022 and buy my current home. They took the time to understand my needs and always had my best interest in mind. They have a no pressure demeanor, they walked me through every step of the transition, were always responsive, took the time to understand my goals and was my advocate throughout the process. Shannon, Lisa and Kristy are just amazing people to work with! I have so much more to say, but not enough space to write it. I highly recommend this team for any of your real estate needs!
